December Event - Friday 14th

SEND Think Tank : The future delivery of SEND Support Services

Northumberland County Council has a number of specialist teams who are available to support schools to deliver the graduated approach for learners of school age.

The graduated approach is a series of steps to work through when supporting a child or young person with SEND at school. SEND Support Services provide advice on interventions appropriate for different types of special educational needs and disabilities to school staff and, when appropriate, provide assessments and / or interventions directly with children and young people.

They also provide training and professional development to schools. Advice and support for schools from the following services are currently purchased by schools through a SLA (Service Level Agreement) :

● Psychological Services (Educational Psychology)
● Behaviour Support Service
● Autism Support Service
● Speech, Language & Communication Service
● Literacy Support Service

Details as to how this process works can be found on our Local Offer
We would like to review the current arrangements to find out how effective they are at supporting schools to identify and meet the needs of children and young people with SEND in Northumberland and will be considering:

● What is working well?
● What could be improved?
● How could services work in the future?

We are asking parents and carers alongside a range of staff who work in settings, schools and colleges to attend a workshop on Friday 14th December at one of the following venues and times. If you would like to attend Please Register Below
