Local Offer – SEND strategy

We are pleased to publish the final version of South Gloucestershire’s Strategy for Children and Young People 0-25 years with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities 2018-2023.

Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the engagement events and consultation on the draft strategy, which closed on 12 March 2018.

The final strategy incorporated the collective feedback we received from listening to the views of children, families, schools, settings, colleges and stakeholders through the consultation events and survey that ran from December 2017 and the engagement sessions that ran in September and October 2017. It sets out the vision and strategic priorities for South Gloucestershire Local Area for the period 2018 – 2023. The strategy was co-produced by South Gloucestershire Council, South Glos Parents and Carers and Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group and has been approved by the relevant partnerships and boards.

For a summary of the results, read what respondents had to say about the draft SEND Strategy in the consultation report  (SEND Strategy Consultation Output report)

We will continue to seek your views and keep you posted on developments and improvements in SEND provision and services in South Gloucestershire via South Glos Parents and Carers, our local parent and carer forum.
