Strategy for SEND and Inclusion

Birmingham City Council established the Inclusion Commission in October 2016 to explore the effectiveness of the current arrangements in the City across the 0-25 age range.

The membership of the Inclusion Commission included representatives from parent groups, early years settings, mainstream schools, colleges, resource bases, specialist providers, independent non-maintained schools, independent specialist colleges and social care and health services.

An independent chair was appointed to oversee this work, Professor Geoff Lindsay from Warwick University.

Every child and young person aged 0-25 with a special educational need and/or disability(SEND) in Birmingham will have the opportunity to be happy, healthy and achieve their fullest potential, enabling them to participate in, and contribute to all aspects of life.

A new Strategy for SEND and Inclusion has been developed including a:

  • Vision
  • Mission
  • Objectives
  • Key Priorities
  • Outline delivery plan

Birmingham’s Strategy for SEND and Inclusion was agreed by the Inclusion Commission and then approved for implementation at Birmingham City Council’s Cabinet meeting on 12 December 2017.
