Work is underway over the next three years that will improve the way South Gloucestershire Council deliver inclusive education across all South Gloucestershire schools and early years settings.
The changes are relevant to all parents and carers and will be of particular interest to you if you have a child with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
This is about putting children at the centre and supporting them to thrive from pre-school and through all the changes and transitions in their lives. The changes support the council’s top priority to give all our children and young people the best start in life.
A letter has been sent to all parents and carers in South Gloucestershire via schools and early years settings in early April 2022 to explain:
- Our vision and plan for improving the way we fund and deliver SEND support across the local education system, so that whatever a child’s needs are and wherever they go to nursery, school or college, there is fairness in paying for support, more inclusive learning across South Gloucestershire and more specialist care locally, too.
- The changes to be phased in over the next three years in more detail and what this means to schools, children and families.
