Feedback gathered by the Special Educational Needs team
The Special Educational Needs (SEN) team are gaining feedback on how parents and professionals found the Education, Health and Care (EHC) assessment meetings.
Of the spring terms 2018 feedback forms that were completed the main findings are as follows:
- Overall parents felt prepared for their child’s EHC meeting
- 100 percent of parents felt satisfied with the EHC meetings with the majority feeling very satisfied (94 percent)
- The majority of parents felt able to contribute at the meetings
Feedback was also gathered from a range of professionals including school staff, health professionals, Educational Psychologist, learning support services and ASSIST.
100 percent of these professionals felt prepared and satisfied with the EHC meetings and transfer review meetings. Feedback from professionals included 'Meeting very accessible with a real focus on the child'.
Transferring Statements of SEN to Education, Health and Care Plans
Although it has taken longer to complete the transfers than we would have wished the council met the 31 March 2018 deadline for transferring all Statements of Special Educational Needs (SEN) to Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans.
Many thanks to the children, young people and their parents and schools for working collaboratively to achieve this.
