OPEN LETTER TO CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE WITH SEND, THEIR PARENTS, FAMILIES AND OTHERS WHO SUPPORT THEM FROM VICKY FORD MP

Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)

This initial list of SEND resources has been developed with a focus on accessibility and inclusivity and is based on the recommendations of:

  • trusted organisations
  • charities
  • multi-academy trusts
  • special education headteachers

We encourage parents, teachers and schools to explore beyond this list to identify what support is best for their children and pupils with SEND.
