The Special Education Needs (SEN) Team

The SEN team are responsible for the review of young people aged 0-25 who have severe, complex and long term special educational needs. They are based in Dorchester and cover the whole of Dorset. The role of the SEN team is to arrange the placement of young people with EHC plans (Education, Health and Care Plans) and any special provision to meet the young persons needs. There is an annual review process, and they work to statutory guidelines as set out by the Education Act 1996, the Children and Families Act 2014 and the SEND Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years.
