Detailed review of areas for improvement - Improving SEND services in Central Bedfordshire
To improve SEND provision across education, health and care services and support in Central Bedfordshire, we are taking a three stage approach.
This is stage 1.
This stage involves:
- listening to the experiences of children, young people, and their families
- listening to professionals and practitioners working with or supporting families
Month-by-month activity (most recent first)
The purpose of these parent panels was to ask for parents' feedback on the draft Central Bedfordshire Written Statement of Action.
SNAP PCF is on the SEND Partnership Board, which has met over the last few months. The board gives a collective parents' view in these meetings.
We attended the meetings, to present and take notes of the feedback. All feedback from these events will inform further changes, ahead of the statement's submission deadline on 1 September 2020.
Our Children's Services Overview and Scrutiny Committee meeting will be held virtually on 7 July at 10am.
Launched listening and engaging activity with children and young people with SEND, through the support of a group of partner organisations (including Healthwatch, Carers in Bedfordshire, Bedford Open Doors, Bedford and District Cerebral Palsy Society and health providers)
