The team leads on all aspects of our family facing work, and supports individual children and young people with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) and their families throughout their SEND journey. This includes securing the right education offer to support their specific needs, and ensuring regular and effective review of their progress, holding providers to account across the system for meeting the needs of individual children and young people.
