West Sussex County Council has been developing a new Strategy to support the inclusion of all children and young people, particularly those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). This Strategy builds on the County Council’s current SEND Strategy for 2016-2019 and the outcomes of the 2018 Ofsted/CQC SEND Local Area Inspection.
The new SEND and Inclusion Strategy for West Sussex 2019-2024 has been co-produced with key stakeholders including education representatives, parents and carers. The draft Strategy has been the subject of public consultation to seek feedback on the proposed vision, priorities and activities by which the Council will shape its work and decisions in relation to SEND over the next five years, and to inform the development of the new Strategy.
The Cabinet Member for Education and Skills will be asked to consider the outcome of the consultation and approve the Strategy and Implementation Plan for publication.
