We want all children to attend good schools, where they can enjoy their learning and achieve their potential regardless of their background.

We will continue to support children and young people who have special educational needs and disabilities.  We will help to break down barriers and encourage greater independence, by working closely with families, schools and partners in the health services (Your Nottinghamshire Your Future 2017-2021)

The Secretary of State for Education has stated: “Our ambition for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) is exactly the same as for every other child – to achieve well in school and college, find employment and go on to live happy and fulfilled lives” - Letter from Damian Hinds, Minister for Education, December 2018

Why We Are Consulting

  • To outline the rationale and early thinking on the proposed re-shaping of high needs funded services and provision
  • To outline proposed new ways of working in response to the impact of the Children and Families Act 2014 and the resultant challenges on budgets and services.
  • To share information about the scope of the consultation process
  • To receive initial feedback arising from consultation discussions

The following proposals have grown from the High Needs Review commissioned by Nottinghamshire Schools Forum undertaken by Peter Gray during the spring and summer terms 2018.

Dear parents and carers,

Following feedback from parents, carers and the Nottinghamshire Parent and Carer Forum about the current High Needs Review survey being conducted by Nottinghamshire County Council, we would specifically like to hear from parents and carers about what they think would increase their confidence in the decision making around the education provision for children and young people with SEND. 

Please take the time to complete this short survey so that your views and feedback can help influence this process.
