A guide to SEND for parents

Oldham’s vision is to be a place where children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) will thrive. 

This will be demonstrated by children and young people with SEND achieving well in their early years, at school and in further education, finding employment, leading happy, healthy, and fulfilled lives, and having choice and control over their support.

How children and young people achieve in their settings is central to Oldham’s vision.

The following information helps you to understand how early years settings, schools, and colleges work with the family and your child through a graduated response to ensure that they achieve their potential.
