Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) toolkit for providers

The SEND toolkit explains the responsibilities on early year providers, schools, colleges and training providers in County Durham, for meeting the special educational needs of children or young people, through a graduated approach.

This toolkit is primarily intended for SENCOs, but it is also useful for head teachers, governors and any staff working in, or alongside, an educational setting with children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

The toolkit brings together all of the guidance documents for schools in County Durham and it has been completed in co-production with parents/carers, young people, SENCOs, educational staff from Early Years, Mainstream, Special School and Post 16 education settings, as well as professionals from the Health and Care sectors.
