The Wolverhampton Strategy for Children and Young People with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities 2020-23 sets out the vision and key priorities that council and partners in the city want to focus on to improve the lives of children and young people with SEND over the next three years.
The strategy has been developed by the Wolverhampton SEND Partnership Board and demonstrates their commitment to making sure children and young people with SEND and their families have an equal opportunity to achieve a good quality ordinary life.
It also supports the Council’s ten-year Children, Young People and Families Plan which aims to improve the resilience, health and emotional wellbeing of children, young people and families in Wolverhampton.
On 24 September, following a period of consultation on the draft strategy held from 14 July to 21 September 2020, the Children and Families Together Board approved the publication of the Wolverhampton Strategy for Children and Young People with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities 2020-23.
The strategy reflects the vision that Wolverhampton is an inclusive City where we work with children, young people, and their families with SEND so that they can achieve their full potential. It recognises that all children with SEND are individuals with aspirations to lead their own lives. While life for a child or young person with SEND and their family is anything but ordinary, the ordinary life principles are what extraordinary achievements are built on.
