Gloucestershire’s Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and inclusion strategies 2022-2025


This April, we’re holding webinars and asking people for their feedback on our proposed SEND and Inclusion strategies before the final strategies are launched later this Summer.


These are Gloucestershire strategies and together with the Government’s Special Educational Needs and Alternative Provision Green Paper are designed to improve the lives and experiences of children and young people with SEND and their families.

What are the Inclusion and SEND strategies?

The two separate strategies have built on the work from the current Joint Additional Needs Strategy which was developed collaboratively with parents, young people and health and social care partners. They have been produced together, to make sure that we take a joined-up approach to address the rising level of need in all settings.

They share common goals to ensure that:

  • Locally we grow together and work collaboratively in a structured way with a shared vision that works in the best interests of children and young people
  • Local funding is supporting earlier identification and intervention and that we address barriers that prevent access to earlier intervention
  • Local specialist support is of high quality and available when its needed
