How is your local authority supporting you?

Each local authority must publish in one place information about the provision that should be available in their area for children and young people aged 0-25 with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). This information is important for apprentices who need support during their training. Once we have received a referral, the Welfare Support Coordinator will work with the apprentice, parents and employer to identify local support where this is required.

Local SEND strategy for Oxford:

Oxfordshire has developed a local SEND strategy for children and young people aged 0–25 with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). It sits alongside the Health and Wellbeing Strategy, which in turn is based on our Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).

It has been developed by the SEND Strategy Development Group with representatives from Oxfordshire County Council (Education and Social Care), NHS Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Education Services and Oxfordshire Parent Carers Forum.

Implementation plans will take account of parent feedback, be developed in co-production and align with strategic objectives. In addition, measures to measure the impact of the SEND strategy at a local level are currently being developed to help us monitor our progress.
