Blackpool SEND Inclusion Team

Add to shortlist


The purpose of the team is to support schools in promoting inclusive practice, to improve the local offer and service provision available for young people with Special Educational Needs and Disability and to help to reduce the number of exclusions in Blackpool.

First and foremost the Local Authority want to ensure every child with SEND in Blackpool has their needs met, that they are happy and are making progress, both in and out of school. We want to achieve this by working together with schools supporting both individual pupils and, when appropriate, reviewing and advising on whole school approaches and developments. We want to support schools to further develop their in-school expertise through training, coaching and mentoring staff, in addition to supporting the young people and their families.

The team covers:

  • Communication and interaction (CI)
  • Speech and language and communication (SLCN)
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Cognition and learning
  • Social, emotional and mental Health difficulties (SEMH)
  • Sensory and/or physical needs
  • Visual difficulties
  • Hearing difficulties
  • Medical difficulties
