Healthwatch Devon: SEND Strategy Consultation

Devon County Council has developed a SEND Strategy for 2017-2020. It sets out Devon’s vision and strategic priorities for SEND, showing commitment to joint working.

Earlier this year we carried out a consultation through Healthwatch on our SEND Strategy.

This consultation had two objectives:
1. To invite people to feedback on the SEND strategy and the 6 key priorities.
2.To use these findings to update and finalise the strategy and to inform the implementation plan.

Devon County Council wrote four different surveys for parents and carers, professionals, children, and young people.  These surveys were on the Healthwatch Devon website  between 17 January 2017 and 17 March 2017.  The report has brought together the responses from the different surveys.
The SEND Improvement Board has approved the final SEND Strategy. We’re working on the SEND implementation plan  with our partners to ensure we meet the priorities set out in the SEND Strategy.
