SEND strategy

The West Northamptonshire Partnership have co-produced a new Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) and Alternative Provision strategy for 2023 – 2026. The strategy sets out the ambitious vision, aims and priorities to ensure that the partnership effectively identifies and meets the needs of the children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities age 0 -25.

The vision is for all children and young people, including those with SEND to thrive, fulfil their potential and live their best life.

The 4 aims that underpin the strategy are:

  • Improving the lived experience
  • Building trust and confidence together
  • Being committed to making positive change happen
  • Ensuring co-production is at the heart of everything we do

There are 6 priority areas which are:

  • Accessibility
  • Resources
  • Identification and assessment
  • Training
  • Alternative provision
  • Preparation for adulthood

There are three golden threads which run through the strategy. These are co-production, inclusion, and THRIVE (Trust, High Performance, Respect, Innovate, Value, Empower).
