Our SEND Partnership Strategy 2020–2023 is in development

Our new strategy has been delayed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak but remains in development.

Our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Partnership Strategy sets out our vision and priorities for improving life outcomes for children and young people with SEND and that of their families. The strategy forms an integral part of the Lewisham Children and Young people’s plan 2016-2019.

We were due to release our 2020-2023 in March 2020, however, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we have had to review the public release of this document to ensure the priorities and objectives capture the ongoing and new challenges which have been bought about by the coronavirus.

The consultation work, communication and engagement we have already worked on will remain included into the SEND Strategy 2020-2023 and we hope to publish an amended strategy when we have evaluated and incorporated responses to recovery plans bought about by the global situation and what this means for our children and young people.
