Birmingham Special Educational Needs and Disability

Welcome to the Birmingham Special Educational Needs and Disability page. On 1 September 2014 Birmingham published a local offer setting out in one place a wide range of information about special educational needs including information about the new Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plans that replace all previous SEN Statements and Learning Difficulty Assessments. The local offer can be found at

The attached newsletter gives an brief overview of the changes to Special Educational Needs and we have produced 4 quick view leaflets to explain the key points of the local offer; education, health and care plans; transitions for both school age and post 16 young people.

Birmingham has also now signed up to a Disabled Children's Charter to commit to improving the quality of life for disabled children. This document is below.
