This category contains listings for specialist education provision within Trafford and our local areas.
The majority of children with a Special Educational Need or disability (SEND) will go to their local mainstream school, college or childcare provider. For their listings please see:
- Children and Families Channel: Childcare and Early Education
- Children and Families Channel: Education
Every Early Years childcare provider, School or College are required to have information about how they meet the needs of children or young people with SEND. These are called:
- Early Years Local Offer (for childcare and early education)
- SEN Information Report (for schools and colleges)
In Trafford 100% of school listings have an attached SEN Information Report for you to view.
In a small number of cases, we may identify a specialist provider out of area within your child's Education, Health and Care Plan. For those in the position to fund such a place indepedently, you can view those who have chosen to list on our website under Fee Paying Schools.
There is also an annual published list of all independent schools and colleges in England catering for special educational needs.
Service and MOD families can access advice and information from the Children's Education Advisory Service
