Decision of the Portfolio Holder for Children, Education, Skills and Early Help


That the revised Dorset Strategy for children and young people (CYP) with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and the accompanying High Needs Block Management Strategy, be noted and approved


Reason for the decision


Dorset Council’s SEND strategy had been updated to reflect the significant progress and changes in Dorset’s SEND services over the last three years.


The previous strategy which was launched in 2018 is due to expire and as a Council it is the right time to refresh this in light of the significant progress that has been made with our partners.
