SEND Strategy 2018 - 2021



In Knowsley, our vision is for all children and young people to have the best start in life, thrive, aim high and achieve their potential. Naturally, we want the same for those children and young people who experience special educational needs and / or disabilities. The SEND Strategy 2018-2021 sets out how we intend to achieve this by working in partnership with our children, young people and their families. This will be achieved by addressing five key priorities:

  • Joint working across all SEND services, partners and families.
  • Co-production with children and young people with SEND and their parents / carers.
  • Improve education, health and care outcomes for children and young people with SEND.
  • Ensure all young people with SEND make a successful transition to adulthood.
  • Improve the quality of Education Health and Care Plans.
