What is SEND Futures Kingston?
SEND Futures Kingston is the name for the ongoing work to transform the way in which support for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) is provided in Kingston.
What is the latest progress?
The Council, Achieving for Children, Health services and schools have produced a Kingston SEND Transformation Plan. This Plan sets out how we will collectively improve SEND services in Kingston.
The Plan builds on feedback received through a consultation we ran during December 2018 ,January 2019 and July 2020.

This updated plan was endorsed by the Council in November 2020.
This version of the SEND Futures Plan includes highlighted content relating to the recommendations of the Education Commission whose findings were considered by the Council in June 2019.
In July 2020 the SEND Partnership Board considered a draft updated version of the SEND Transformation Plan previously approved by the Council in Feb 2019. This draft update can be found here:
The draft will be considered by Schools Forum in September 2020 and by the Health and Wellbeing Board and Council committees in the autumn. We invited comments / feedback on the draft throughout the summer and asked that these were received before 15th September 2020.
