Your Help Needed! – In It Together Event

In It Together has been working with staff at County Hall on future developments in SEND (special educational needs and disabilities). They are keen to work with more parents and carers across the county on a number of tasks. These include co-producing different pieces of information.

One of the tasks is to revise the forms that you and your children/young people fill in, which state your thoughts and feelings around their education and needs. Nicola Taylor (SEND Project Manager) and Angela Davies (School Improvement Lead for SEND) will be coming along to In It Together locality meetings to introduce and work through some of the tasks. They are keen to involve as many people as possible to obtain a broad range of views, so if you can spare a couple of hours to attend it would be greatly appreciated. If you are unable to attend but wish to contribute please get in touch.
