Support for children aged 0-25 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Improvement plan for special educational needs and disabilities (written statement of action)

BCP Council and NHS Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are committed to working in partnership with children, young people, parents, carers and other agencies to radically improve support for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

We have produced an improvement plan – called a 'written statement of action' – which we are now putting into action. The plan sets out how we are going to make improvements in eight key areas highlighted in an inspection of SEND services earlier this year (read the original inspection letter here). 

The eight key areas addressed by the plan are: 

  • Culture  
  • Evaluation  
  • Co-production  
  • Sustainable services 
  • Graduated response  
  • Education and health care plans (EHCPs)  
  • Joint commissioning 
  • Exclusion and inclusion
