Strategy for special needs education in Blackburn with Darwen

Lancashire Telegraph: Strategy for special needs education in Blackburn with Darwen Strategy for special needs education in Blackburn with Darwen

A NEW strategy for young people with special educational needs has been drawn up for Blackburn with Darwen borough.

It covers young people aged up to 25.

Education boss Dave Harling and children’s services boss Frank Connor will tell the council’s executive board tomorrow that the blueprint meets the requirements of the government’s Children and Families Bill currently going through Parliament.

It includes a new code of practice and reflects changes in Westminster financing of local authorities and schools for children with high and complex needs.

The blueprint will bring in ‘a single approach to assessment and planning for young people with special education needs from birth to 25’. It also introduces a ‘joint planning and assessment process across education, health and social care and extends current provision through transition up to age 25.”

The new strategy will also make sure parents, carers and guardians can access the information they need in one place. The Bill is expected to become law in September.
