The Local Authority has drawn up an overview of the provision and support that should be available in all settings in Bedford for children and young people with SEND.

Each setting in Bedford will have a slightly different approach and facilities. Please click the buttons in this section to find a list of all schools in the Borough with an overview of how they support children and young people with additional needs. There will also be a link to their SEN Information Report on their website.

To attend a special school, children and young people will have a high level of complex needs and must have a Statement of SEN or EHCP. For information about the admissions policies for specialist settings please visit the Bedford Borough website. To find out more about Bedford’s specialist settings click on the Special Schools button.
