Assessing whether a child with SEND should be in a special school

There are a range of special schools within Sutton and also a number of our primary and secondary schools have Opportunity Bases which offer support for a range of learning, communication and sensory needs within a mainstream setting. However, all of our mainstream schools cater for SEND. Look at the entries in the schools section and you will see the range of support that they can offer. The vast majority of children and young people do have their SEND needs met within a mainstream setting.
