SEND and Inclusion

Our service is striving to:

  • Achieve the best outcomes for our children and young people.
  • Put wellbeing and care at the centre of our service so we can deliver for our children and young people.
  • Communicate well with our children, young people, families and partners.
  • Be creative with our support for children and young people.
  • Proactively support our children, young people and families.
  • Be aspirational for what our children and young people can achieve.
  • Work in partnership with others to provide an inclusive Buckinghamshire offer for children and young people with SEND.

SEND and Inclusion for schools and professionals in Bucks

To achieve the aims outlined in our Buckinghamshire Local Area SEND and Inclusion Strategy, we must all work together. SEND is everyone’s business. Building both the strategic and operational partnership with families, settings, and professionals across the domains of education, health and care is paramount.

Formed in September 2019, we are now in our third year as an Integrated SEND Service (iSEND). We have learned so much about who we are, what we want to be able to achieve, and how we can support all our children and young people, aged 0 to 25 years to achieve the best possible outcomes for their future.

Our service works collaboratively; Educational Psychologists, Specialist Teachers, and EHC Coordinators alike, and this impact of this integrated model of working has been recognised as best practice at a national level. 

Our iSEND Service Vision

Part of our vision is to ensure that we are able to provide local support to those who need it.  In order to achieve this, our teams are locality based covering the Aylesbury Vale, Chiltern, and South Bucks, and the Wycombe areas.  Please click on the links above to find out more information about what support is available in your area and when and how to contact the team should you have a further query.

Our commitment to working together is strong and our passion for creating a truly inclusive culture in Buckinghamshire to support the long-term aspirations of our young people is central to our work.  I feel privileged to work with such a talented, driven, child and young person-focused set of people that rise to the challenge, even when faced with complex situations every day. I am looking forward to building our partnership even further and welcome feedback as to how information on this site can be improved to ensure we are providing you with what you need to deliver on high ambitions for our children and young people.

Our iSEND Service Communications policy is intended to promote communication in an environment of fluid change. The ISEND Senior Leadership Team (SLT) encourages openness in sharing information with colleagues and are committed to consulting with staff on a regular basis. This has included the development of this policy, considering all ideas put forward from members of the ISEND Service.
