Have your say! Public consultation on SEND

Following both the launch of the new Local Area SEND Inspection framework in November 2022 and the SENDAP green Paper in March 2023, officers across education, health and care have worked with families, providers, and a range of different teams and professionals to compose the first drafts of three key strategies for SEND in North East Lincolnshire. With a significant focus on getting children with SEND and their families, the right support at the right time, we hope that these strategies identify where our priorities collectively across the borough are to further strengthen this offer.

Officers who have led on the drafting of the strategies have worked tirelessly to include a range of voices and feedback that has been gathered since September 2022.  The Delivering Better Value in SEND engagement surveys, events, and workshops along with the launch of the NEL Parent Carer forum have both provided a huge amount of insight data, that has helped shape the 5 key priorities and the content of what the borough needs to focus on over the next five years to make things even better for our children and their families.

We are keen to hear your feedback to be able to complete the final documents, which will then provide a clear direction of travel over the next five years.

Please open and read each of the draft documents before taking part in the consultations.
