Sefton Council wants children and young people across the borough to reach their full potential and fully recognises that services for those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) need improvements.
The development of an action plan is already being developed following the Ofsted and Care Quality Commission review that says the local area’s provision needs work to ensure it meets the needs of children, young people and families and The Council recognises that the partnership needs to hold leaders in health to account for actions.
