Hertfordshire's SEND Toolkit for schools

Herts for Learning are pleased to announce the launch of Hertfordshire's first SEND toolkit on special educational needs or disabilities for schools.

SEND advisers from Herts for Learning in partnership with parents from HPCI, have been travelling around the county this October to deliver a series of launch workshops to schools to introduce a new SEND toolkit.

Louise Barrell (HfL) and Gillian Warwick-Thomson show off the toolkit

One of the key drivers of the toolkit is to help professionals deliver the the culture change required by the 2014 SEND reforms. It is based on the SEND reforms but adds the Hertfordshire flavour around what we want to see delivered for our children and young people.  A vast array of resources accompany the toolkit, and include a SEND Benchmark & Planning Tool that helps guide schools to provide and manage quality SEND support.

The suite of SEND materials developed over time provides schools with a vision, a self-evaluation framework and now a toolkit to provide a range of resources, tools and guidance to support the onward journey in supporting children and young people with SEND.

You can see the digital version of the Hertfordshire SEND Toolkit 2019-20 in the SEND documents and guidance page on the Local Offer.
