In 2015 many parents and carers, children and young people gave their views about:

  • The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) system in general
  • What difference it has made to them
  • The changes they had seen in the past year since the SEND reforms were introduced in September 2014

This happened in various ways including:

  • Attending one of four feedback events and arranged by Cambridgeshire’s Parent Partnership or SENDIAS Service
  • Completing an online survey arranged by Cambridgeshire’s Parent Partnership or SENDIAS Service
  • Taking part in a nationally led survey about Education Health & Care Plans using the ‘Personal Evaluation and Outcome Tool’ or POET for short
  • Attending one of the five termly Pinpoint Parent Network meetings

The views and feedback help us to

  • Identify what’s working and where the gaps are
  • Improve the way we all provide support by sharing the feedback with all involved in education, health and care of children with SEND
  • Develop plans on what we need to do as a result of the feedback
  • Use this feedback as a benchmark to measure ourselves against again next year
