Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Strategy 2018-2023

In Cambridgeshire and Peterborough; families, support services and educational settings are working together to agree the attitudes and values we expect from each other when working with or caring for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

A number of commitments have been outlined. Together we will:

  • Welcome everyone

  • Be honest

  • Trust each other

  • Aim high

  • Be positive

  • Listen

  • Celebrate success

  • Value individuality

  • Build confidence

  • Create opportunities

This forms our pledge to each other that we hope everyone will agree to. It will underpin how we all work together and how we think about the ways in which we provide support and services. It is crucial to the success of the delivery of our SEND strategy - SEND is Everybody’s Business -  and vital to help us to achieve the 7 outcomes that we agree are important to us all.

The 7 outcomes are: That everyone will be able to be:-

  • aspirational

  • confident

  • healthy

  • included

  • respected

  • safe and

  • successful
