Supporting children and young people who have special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in mainstream schools and settings
Download the SEND Mainstream Guidance by clicking on the picture or from the Downloads section and the training materials to support this guidance can be found in the downloads section. This guidance describes the provision that should be normally available across all mainstream schools and settings for pupils with SEND.
The LA is responsible for securing the provision of services which address the needs of all children and young people, including the most disadvantaged and vulnerable and their families and carers.
A priority of the LA is to ensure that education is of utmost importance in realising positive futures for all children and young people in Newcastle. As part of achieving this aim, all schools are expected to provide for children and young people with SEND, and those who are vulnerable, within their own locality area. This is also in accordance with the Education Act and all partners in the education community have a role to play.
