The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Improvement Board is part of the governance arrangements for Somerset’s provision for children and young people who have SEND.

The board’s role is to direct and hold to account the workstreams which are needed to deliver the Joint Written Statement of Action (WSOA), which resulted from the local area inspection in March 2020.  A more detailed description of the board’s role, including membership can be found in the Terms of Reference.
