SEND strategic developments

Information on how the local area services within Leicestershire are working together for the best outcomes for our children and young people.

The Children and Families Act of 2014 included reforms for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. The reforms put children and parents / carers at the heart of the SEND system. The reforms that are outlined within the SEND Code of Practice enable parents to have a role in shaping the support that they receive.

Crucial to our success in developing our services, is the important role that parent / carers and children and young people have in shaping the experience for children of Leicestershire with SEND. We would like to offer thanks to all those that have contributed to our work so far and to those engaged in supporting children and young people with SEND and their families across Leicestershire. 

Our vision

Our vision in Leicestershire for children with special educational needs and disabilities is the same as for all children and young people – for them to achieve well in their education, to be cared for in safe and supportive families, participate and be involved in their communities and lead happy, safe and fulfilled lives.
