Developing the Approach and Provision for Children and Young People with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

This report set out a series of proposals that will enable the county council to fulfil its responsibilities for ensuring the sufficiency of provision for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities over the next five years. It builds on an earlier report to Cabinet on 8 August 2019, setting out the current position with respect to the number and placement of children and young people in Lancashire with special educational needs and disabilities. The current proposals are consistent with the principles underpinning the approach to the development of special educational needs provision that were agreed at the August Cabinet meeting.
