SEND Updates

City of York Council (CYC) and the NHS Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) welcome the opportunity to continually and jointly improve services for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) in York.


Our ambition is for York to be a city that is inclusive for all;  that services are delivered at the right time and from the right places and  that all of our children succeed and are happy, healthy and safe.


Following the Local Area SEND Inspection that took place in December, we are making some changes to our services. This page has updates about the improvements we’re making, details of how you can get involved and information about the inspection.

Written Statement of Action

As a result of the SEND inspection, a Written Statement of Action has been developed. This document outlines the changes that will be made, the outcomes we aim to see and the time frames in which these should be achieved.
