An event will take place later in the month to celebrate some of the improvements made by Bexley’s Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) teams.

Partners, professionals and parent/carer representatives will gather on March 29 to recognise the achievements of the teams, which were introduced as part of a local area improvement plan following a 2016 inspection.

The SEND board was formed a year ago, and includes key partners from a number of organisations who have monitored the local area’s progress and helped the teams involved to focus on making a difference.

Cabinet member for education, cllr John Fuller, said: “We are committed to continuing to improve.

“We recognise that we have a way to go but we are proud of the progress we have made.

“Through the implementation board we have been able to strengthen our relationships and improve the way we can work with our partners to support each other to find creative solutions to the challenges we have faced.”

A survey is currently taking place to capture the views of parents/carers in Bexley who have a child with a special educational need or disability. The survey is available at and runs until May 14.
