The 0 to 25 SEND Statutory Assessment Team coordinate the statutory support for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN). Most children and young people with special educational needs can have their needs effectively met within the resources that are available in mainstream schools/settings or colleges.
In a very small number of cases the Local Authority will agree to initiate an assessment of a child or young person's education needs. This is to determine whether or not they need the additional support of a legal document that sets out what their needs are and how these will be supported.
Once completed, the form is submitted to the local authority on-line and a copy circulated to those attending the review meeting.
