A Strategic Plan for SEND Provision in North Yorkshire

We are responsible by law for reviewing how special education is provided in North Yorkshire, and for making sure there are enough places in education for children and young people with SEND. We work closely with parents, carers, young people, local groups, education providers and professionals so we can meet this responsibility in the best possible way.


During 2017 and 2018 we heard from parents, carers, children and young people and professionals about their views on how special education is provided. This helped us develop an overarching strategic plan for how we will provide educational support for young people with SEND in North Yorkshire in the future.


We held a public consultation on our final plan during May and June 2018.  The consultation has now closed, but you can still read the consultation documents at the following link https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/previous-consultations

The final plan has been approved by North Yorkshire County Council’s Executive, and can be found here www.northyorks.gov.uk/sendplan.  We are now delivering the actions in the plan.



We would like to thank everyone who has shared their time and thoughts to help us to develop the Strategic Plan.
