Our vision and goals IPSEA’s Strategy 2020-2024 is the result of a review by the board of trustees and staff of all aspects of our work. We have developed our strategic goals to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of children and young people with SEND now and in the future, with the aim of closing the gap in educational achievement for children and young people with SEND. Our vision Our vision is that children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities are able to fulfil their potential. Our mission We help children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities, and their families and carers, to get the appropriate education, training and support to which they are entitled under the law. Our objectives In order to achieve our mission, we aim to: Provide legally-based information, advice and casework support for children and young people with SEND and their parents and carers in England. Inform, educate and train professionals and practitioners working within education, local authority, health, advice and charity sector settings to ensure all children and young people with SEND receive the education and support that they are entitled to under the law, and ensure parents, carers and young people are aware of their legal rights and empowered to challenge unlawful decisions and inadequate provision. Ensure compliance with the SEND law framework by identifying and challenging unlawful practice and being at the forefront of influencing SEND policy development and legislative change. Ensure IPSEA continues to be sustainable, forward-looking and provides high quality services that are responsive to the needs of children and young people with SEND and their families.
