Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are seeking views on their draft strategy for supporting children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
The strategy has been co-produced by professionals, parents, carers and young people from Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. It sets out how both local areas will work to support children, young people and their families with SEND in future.
It is built upon a shared belief that considering and providing for the needs of children and young people with SEND should be ‘everyone’s business’, with the aim of providing high quality multi-agency services which will enable children and young people to thrive.
Its shared vision is for young people to:
- Lead happy, healthy and fulfilled lives, having choice and control over decisions about their health, education, employment, friendships and relationships.
- Achieve in line with, or better than, expectation in their early years, school, further education and training.
- Successfully participate in the community and access meaningful occupation employment and life-long learning opportunities
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are inviting people to share their thoughts as part of the engagement process.
The engagement process runs until 12 November 2018. To get involved, visit https://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/news/send-strategy-consultation/
