New Devon SEND Strategy 2021-2024

Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the opportunity to thrive. Some just need a little extra help or special support to achieve their potential.

Devon's SEND Local Offer and strategy has been produced in collaboration with families and set out how we will help improve outcomes for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities and their families.

These priorities make up our SEND Local Offer, which includes the education, health and social care services and support for children and young people (0-25) with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Under the SEND Code of Practice 2014, schools are required to publish an Annual SEN Information Report. This is available to download in the Useful Links and Guidance below.
