Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) are visiting Durham to inspect the local arrangements for children and young people with SEND. They want your views on how effective these SEND services are.

Supporting special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) - templates, referral forms and reports

Templates, referral forms and reports that professionals can use when supporting children and young people aged 0-25 with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

These templates show the type of information that is required detailing what professionals know about a child/young person. The advice provided should be used by the setting when requesting an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC) assessment, and/or reviewing an existing EHC plan. Settings submitting a request for Top Up funding should complete the new Educational Advice template.

Some of the documents on this page are not be accessible. They have been created for print purposes to be used by practitioners and are not for use by the general public. If, for any reason, you cannot access the documents and need an alternative format, please contact us.
