Special Education Needs and Disability (SEND)

Special Education Needs and Disability (SEND)

A new system for supporting children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), and their parents, came into effect (SEND guides and information).  The new system aims to ensure that any support your child gets, from their school or other setting, such as their nursery or childminder, should meet their needs, these also include health needs.

The Local Offer has been developed by Wirral Council and Community Action Wirral and has been informed through a partnership approach with a number of other organisations.

The Local Offer sets out in one place information about provision across education, health and social care to support children and young people with SEND. You can access the Local Offer here. http://localofferwirral.org/
