Kirklees Accessibility Strategy

This document sets out our aims and vision for those with SEND in Kirklees.

This includes the overall vision for children and young people with SEND in Kirklees:

Our ambition for children and young people with special
educational needs and disabilities (SEND) is the same for all
children and young people –
that they achieve well in their early years,
at school and in college and lead happy and fulfilled lives.

We want our children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and their families to receive coordinated, high quality and family centred guidance and support which is based on their identified needs, and promotes positive, aspirational outcomes. In order to do this, we would expect that disabled children and young people and their families will:

  • Only tell their story once
  • Have access to education, employment, training and social opportunities
  • Make use of the support available to them within their community
  • Be in control

The Kirklees Accessibility Strategy is available at the bottom of this page.
