What’s important to us (our values):

Ensuring individual needs are met and that outcomes are established that drive inclusion and progress for children and young people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.       

What we do:

We respond to requests for a formal assessment of special educational need.  

We provide and manage the statutory Education, Health and Care process, including changes of placement and annual reviews.

We work with parents, health, education, care and voluntary organisations to achieve high quality assessments and Education, Health and Care Plans for children and young people.

We monitor and review provision for learners aged 2 -25 years to ensure that their needs are being met according to their Education, Health and Care plans.

We also manage the application process for schools to apply for 'additional support' in order to continue to provide appropriate support from within the education setting.

We try to resolve any difficulties which may arise and recognise the important role of Parent Partnership, we also offer mediation if it would be helpful for parents.

There are three teams, one based in the city, north and south areas of the County.
