Inclusion Strategy focus group
Sheffield City Council wants to develop an Inclusion Strategy, which will set the strategic direction for supporting vulnerable children and young people (including those with special educational needs and disabilities) in Sheffield.
Council officers have already done some work on this strategy, but without any direct involvement of parents. This workshop has been arranged to try and address this.
Because we only have two hours, we have decided to focus on three key areas that parents keep raising concerns about:
- SEN Support in mainstream schools: How can we ensure that SEN provision is of a consistently high quality across all schools in Sheffield?
- EHC plans: Because we already have lots of evidence relating to the process of getting an EHC plan (such as timescales, quality, and communication with parents), we would like to focus more on what happens once a plan is in place – what difference does it make?
- Specialist provision: Do we have the right mix of specialist provision (special schools and IRs) in Sheffield?
If you can’t attend this workshop, you can also give us your views by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone (0300 321 4721). There may be workshops on other topics in the future.
