Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Strategy consultation

Merton’s Children’s Trust is developing the Merton strategy for meeting the needs of children and young people who have SEN and/or disabilities to make sure that services across the borough work together and in partnership with children, young people and their families to ensure improved outcomes.
