The London Borough of Hillingdon has high ambitions for children and young people including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
We firmly believe that children and young people (CYP) including those with the most complex needs should have access to good local provision and every opportunity to achieve good outcomes, whether this be education, employment, independent living, participation in their community or being as healthy as possible.
We aim to provide a seamless approach for families which puts our residents first through person centred and outcome focussed working and which involves families in shaping our service delivery.
Whilst we feel we have made considerable progress since 2014 and the implementation of the Children and Families Act, we are confident that we can do more to improve the outcomes for CYP and adults with disabilities and those with special educational needs in the borough. We asked parents/carers for their views and in partnership with the Clinical Commissioning Group (health) we have recorded our shared commitments in a strategy called ‘Hillingdon’s Strategy for Children, Young People and Young Adults 0 to 25 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities 2016 to 2021)’.
