Supporting Students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) to Learn and Achieve

The City of Wolverhampton Council has recently produced a draft policy framework to guide the future development of educational provision for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities in Wolverhampton. 

Widespread consultation was undertaken by City of Wolverhampton Council in Spring 2020 and on 3 June 2020, the Cabinet of the City of Wolverhampton Council considered the outcomes of consultation and approved the High Needs Provision Framework. 

This decision was taken to support the City of Wolverhampton Council to ensure the sufficiency of appropriate provision and to provide a clear and transparent structure to guide the development of the local educational estate.
