Support for education providers
Whilst our SEND information hub is focused on supporting parents, carers and young people, education settings can also find relevant support and guidance.
For advanced support and contact details, education settings can visit the Kelsi website for all special educational needs and disability (SEND) education setting information.
Standards, strategies and charters
All education settings in Kent should provide support and seek to put provision in place for children with SEND taking in to account their individual needs. As part of our commitment with education settings, strategies and standards have been created to explain how support must be put in place.
- Early year settings: Best practice guidance
- Schools: mainstream core standards and SEND co-production charter
- All education settings: SEND inclusion statement and SEND strategy.
Early years settings
Early years providers, childminders and out of school providers, who support pre-school children with SEN can apply to us for the special educational needs inclusion fund (SENIF). It is a statutory requirement, made available by us, to secure better outcomes.
Schools and colleges
Schools and colleges can apply for high needs funding if they need financial support to help deliver the support they need to for your child or young person.
