Gloucestershire’s SEND and Inclusion Strategies 2022-2025

Gloucestershire’s SEND and Inclusion strategies 2022-2025 have been built on the priorities from the Joint Additional Needs Strategy, which was co-produced with parent carers, young people and health and social care partners. The current SEND strategy builds on the work that has been delivered over the past three years through the Joint Additional Needs and High Needs Strategies, ensuring our priorities are clear and reflect those of parent carers, children and young people with SEND.

Our vision

We want all children and young people in Gloucestershire to thrive, exceed expectations and live remarkable lives. 

We will support children to be confident, achieve their ambitions, be aspirational and progress positively into adulthood.

To do so we will grow together, work co-productively with children, families, education, health, and care services to have a shared responsibility so that locally we provide:

  • A positive learning experience in their school or education setting(s)
  • Joined up access to early support using the Graduated Pathway or statutory support through the Education, Health and Care Plan
  • Opportunities to shape and influence the support children and their families receive.

We know that good provision for children and young people with SEND requires:

  • listening to our parent carers, children and young people with SEND;
  • consistent application of quality assurance measures across our services;
  • shared accountability and collaboration across our services;
  • providing a Local Offer that is relevant and reflective of the needs of our children and young people with SEND;

By working in this way across our Local Area Partnership, we want to demonstrate our understanding of what it is like to be a child or young person with SEND living in Gloucestershire and what makes a positive impact on their lives.
