Delivering Special Provision Locally

Delivering Special Provision Locally is a Hertfordshire initiative that is all about local schools, provisions, parents and other stakeholders, taking responsibility for the services for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities in their own area. These are the people who know the areas best and who recognise the unique challenges that each area presents. DSPL will secure a range of provision, support services and resources in each area that:

  • meets the needs of children and young people with SEND aged 0–25 as close to home as possible
  • improves outcomes for wellbeing and attainment
  • widens choice for children and parents/carers
  • removes barriers to learning
  • uses resources effectively
