SEND Strategy


Telford and Wrekin Council want our children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) to achieve, live fulfilling lives and be part of their local communities. We have aspirations that all children and young people will succeed and the very best outcomes will be achieved. You, our residents, tell us that you would like our services to enable you to be as independent as possible but when you need it you have access to the right support at the right time.

This policy has been developed to achieve our goals. It recognises that we will need to collaborate and work with schools, colleges and settings in the maintained and non-maintained sectors, health and social care, including adult services and the voluntary sector. Partnership will be key.

Belonging Strategy

The Belonging Strategy is an overarching strategy that describes the priorities for all partners across Telford and Wrekin in addressing some of the key issues described through an increased sense of belonging. This is underpinned by a Belonging Action Plan where progress towards delivering the objectives described will be tracked. It is also underpinned by the Fair Access Protocol which describes the operation of the Fair Access Panel and the support available to young people and schools. The Hard to Place Protocol which sits under the Fair Access Protocol describes the process to ensure that the most vulnerable young people are placed in a fair and equitable way.
