There is still time for people to have their say about Wolverhampton's new SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) and Inclusion Strategy 2024.

A consultation by the city’s SEND and Inclusion Partnership Board continues until Friday 17 November, 2023. To find out more, read the strategy and have your say, please visit Consultation. 

Councillor Jacqui Coogan, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Education, Skills and Work, said: "We are determined that children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities, including health and social needs, get the support they and their families need to lead a good quality life and to achieve their full potential. 

"We believe that by working together with families and partners we will achieve this.  

"This strategy sets out the vision and priorities of the SEND and Inclusion Partnership Board’s offer to children, young people and their families. It also recognises and builds on our strengths and what works well for families.

"I’d like to thank everyone who has already taken the time to complete our survey and would encourage others to take a few moments to have their say about the vision and priorities that have been identified. The Board will review the strategy and action plan on an annual basis to ensure that organisations remain focused on the right things and improve outcomes for children and young people in Wolverhampton."

The strategy has been co-produced with stakeholders and sets out the duties of SEND and Inclusion Partnership Board. It will be delivered through an action plan that will be overseen by the Children and Families Together Board.
