SEND Assessment Team (0-25 years)

The SEND Assessment Team is part of Middlesbrough Councils SEND and Vulnerable Learners Service, who are responsible for our Local Offer website.


The main work of the SEND Assessment Team is to co-ordinate Statutory EHC Assessment procedures. In addition to arranging for appropriate special educational provision to be put in place for children and young people with an Education Health and Care (EHC) plan and to keep them under review. Staff also liaise with schools, parents / carers and other agencies in the issuing of documentation.


Staff can give you advice about SEN arrangements and Statutory Assessment procedures. If your child is undergoing Statutory Assessment they will be able to keep you informed about the progress of the assessment. If your child has a EHC plan the SEND Case Officers are your main point of contact if you have any questions about your child's Special Educational Needs.

SEND Case Officers also support schools through the EHCP assessment process, offering advice to schools on their legislative responsibilities as laid out in the SEND Code of Practice. They will also liaise with parents/carers on aspects of their child's education.

SEND Case Officers may also represent the Local Authority at statutory annual, interim, transition and multi-agency reviews as required.

The SEND Assessment Team also includes a small number of SEND Case Officers who provide careers guidance.
