Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

We are committed in Somerset to all local children accessing local education provision and ensuring every child in Somerset achieves well above expectations and is not held back by their social and personal backgrounds, special education needs or disabilities. The provision for supporting children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities is based on the SEND Code of Practice 0-25.

Somerset’s SEND Local Offer website has information on the services available for children and young people up to 25 years with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and how to access them.
