Closing date: 12 September 2019
Help shape the services provided to children, young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
What is this consultation about and why are we doing it?
Across the country there are a growing number of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Demand for support is increasing and the available funding is not currently keeping up with this growth. Cheshire West and Chester Council, wants to plan for the future to meet these needs in the best way possible and wants to make sure everyone affected has the chance to shape any changes that we make.
What has happened so far?
We have met and spoken with children and young people and their parents/carers, schools, colleges and professionals to find out what works well in the local area, how we support special educational needs and what needs to change. We have looked at other local authority areas and the changes happening across the country. We have found out that we cannot meet the increasing level of need without changing the way we do things. We have based our ideas on everything we have learned so far and now we want to know what you think we should do to plan for the future.
What are the areas for consideration?
We have come up with a number of ideas about what we should do over the next few years and these are presented below as ‘areas for consideration’.
We want to know what you think about these, and will collect your feedback over a 12 week consultation period between 20 June and 12 September 2019.
How can I get involved and have my say?
The consultation is open from 20 June until 12 September 2019.
You can tell us your views by taking part in our online survey.
