SEND Strategic Review

Review of Provision for Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)

 In accordance with Devon’s SEND Strategy and implementation plan, Devon County Council is undertaking an annual review of education provision for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.

As part of the review, the Council is undertaking a short series of surveys during the Autumn 2017, to obtain feedback from as many of those directly involved as possible. The outcomes from the review will directly impact on education provided in the future.

We want to know what is going well, identify what can be done better, set clear priority areas for improvement and so improve outcomes for children and young people with SEND.

We are consulting with a range of stakeholders which include: families, children and young people, schools, Early Years providers, Colleges, Devon Information Advice and Support for SEND Service (DIAS), health and social care professionals, the SEND Improvement Board and Devon Parent Carers’ Voice.

The deadline for submissions was 8th December 2017.
