SEND, inclusion and safeguarding

Safeguarding and supporting children and young people with Special Educational Needs and educational Health Care Plans and supporting minority groups and disadvantaged or vulnerable learners through assessment, support and specialist interventions.

Our teams deliver bespoke services which are designed to help schools and settings identify and address individual pupils’ learning needs and priority areas for development. We support strategy development by providing guidance, support and training to schools, settings and colleagues. Through this support we aim to reduce the barriers that can prevent children from achieving their full potential.
