Welcome to the Special Education Needs and Disability Home page. As part of the Children and Families Act 2014, the local authority has a requirement to publish information, advice and guidance in relation to Special Educational Needs and Disability. The page has been split into four core areas to enable you to navigate the webpage and find the information you require.

You will find useful information from Education, Social Care and Health in the following sections, together with information on parent support.

Comments, Complaints & Compliments Procedures

Education, Health and Care Plan Assessment

Information and Guidance

Personal Budgets

On the SEND Home page you will also find the link to the local offer of services, which will provide you with an array of services and providers covering 0 – 25 years both within the local area and regionally to support families of children with special educational needs and/or a disability. 

Local Areas are inspected by Ofsted and CQC (Care Quality Commission) in relation to the work they do to support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).  Click the link below to view the multi agency response to the recent SEND Inspection in Hartlepool.
