SEND national news and consultations

The UK Government’s SEND and alternative provision green paper was published on 29 March 2022. It set out a vision for a single, national SEND and alternative provision (AP) system that will introduce new standards in the quality of support given to children across education, health and care.

The green paper is the result of the SEND Review, commissioned to improve the SEND system for parents, carers, children and young people.

Read the summary of the SEND review: ‘right support, right place, right time’ on the UK Government website.

Events and activities

Family grab packs

These grab packs are for parents and carers, children or young people to help them work through particular topics. Many also have a therapeutic content to them and they have been written by Educational Psychologists working with primary mental health workers and wellbeing facilitators.

If you have an account, you can access them from the North Yorkshire Children and Young People's Service website.
