Updated SEND action plan

Surrey County Council and its health partners in six Surrey clinical commissioning groups* have developed an updated SEND action plan to help improve the school attendance of children and young people with SEND. High quality education is one of the key ways that children and young people can be supported in order to achieve better outcomes and lead fulfilling lives.

The main areas of focus and support for children and young people with SEND who are not attending school regularly are:

  • helping them transition successfully to their next placement
  • helping them get timely mental health support
  • helping their families to support them
  • encouraging better support for them in schools
  • ensuring children’s social care, health, schools and families work better together to support them.

Visit the Surrey Local Offer to read the updated action plan and the Surrey local area SEND action plan measures and targets.

*Surrey’s six clinical commissioning groups are Guildford and Waverley CCG, North West Surrey CCG, Surrey Downs CCG, East Surrey CCG, Surrey Heath and Farnham and North East Hampshire CCG.
