From September 2014, there will be a new process for supporting children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disability. This document provides information on what's changing, who it affects and how to prepare.

We are continually evaluating our working practices for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) in Torbay.  In relation to the SEND Reforms, from 2013, we worked with partners to produce a range of storyboards to assist us in keeping track of the developments. We have a Self Assessment document, which is continually under review, that draws together our strengths and weaknesses and in turn highlights our priorities. The current version can be made available on request.
