TEACHERS from Warwickshire are being called on to help explore new guidance being produced to support young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
The guidance is being developed with practitioners and parents, and promotes Warwickshire’s inclusive, needs-led ethos in supporting children and young people with SEND in mainstream schools. Its purpose is to help schools to implement effective extra support for young people.
The guidance will be available on the web, for quick and easy access.
School staff focus groups will explore and discuss the guidance to help shape the needs of young people in Warwickshire. Once all the feedback is collated, the new guidance will be launched later in the year.
Warwickshire County Council’s spokesman for children and education Jeff Morgan said: “The insight from educational professionals will be invaluable in creating the new guidance which is one component of the council’s SEND and Inclusion Change Programme. The programme has a diverse set of projects working to provide every child with access to high-quality education so they can achieve their full potential.”
The focus groups are open to all school staff, including senior leaders, special educational needs coordinators and class and subject teachers.
The hour-long focus groups will take place on Thursday July 1 at 3.30pm, Tuesday July 13 at 3.30pm and Thursday July 15 at 9.15am.
