Have your say - SEND and Inclusion Service Offer for education settings in Warwickshire
Education settings, professionals, parents, carers, children and young people in Warwickshire are being asked to have their say on proposed changes to the special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and Inclusion Service Offer.
The public consultation has been running since the start of December 2022 and gives people the opportunity to have their say on the proposed changes to both the core and traded offer, currently provided for education settings. The consultation closes on Sunday 26 February 2023.
If you missed the recent online broadcast and would like to hear more on the proposals you can watch the recording below:
The consultation forms part of a wider programme of work being undertaken to improve outcomes for children and young people with SEND in Warwickshire.
The core offer includes the things the Council agrees are right things to do to help to improve support services for children and young people with SEND. The proposed changes to the traded offer include things that the council could provide, such as specialist training, if other agencies such as schools and education settings wish to pay for them.
The feedback from the consultation will be used to help improve the range of services provided by the Council to ensure that education settings have the right resources and skills to meet the needs of their learners and that all children and young people with special educational needs feel fully supported.
