Support in mainstream schools

All schools must provide information about their individual support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities, on their own websites and through printed information. Use the ‘find services for SEN and disabilities’ button on this page to find schools in your area.

You can find our guide setting out the offer of support from all mainstream schools in Leeds in the documents section on this page. This includes the support that children with SEN and disabilities who are in foster care or residential settingscan expect. You can also read more about a young person's experiences in the documents section. To find out more about specialist education provision for complex needs please see the related pages section.


If you would like to comment on the offer of support in mainstream schools, we would like to hear from you. Use our feedback page under the related​ pages section to share your views.
