Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Strategy 2018-2023

Residents across Camridgeshire and Peterborough have recently given feedback on our draft SEND strategy in a consultation that ended on 12 November.

Following consideration of the responses, the strategy will be published in Spring 2019
and an action plan will also be coproduced

If you are interested, you can still look at our draft strategy.

We have also produced a presentation which summarises the key points of the Strategy.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough SEND Strategy background

'Strategy' in Scrabble letters

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough have recently sought the views on their draft strategy for supporting children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

The draft strategy was co-produced by professionals, parents, carers and young people from Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

The draft strategy has been 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.

Please view either the  draft full strategy document or the draft easy read versions in the 'useful documents' section on this page.

SEND strategy engagement process feedback

“In the Autumn we asked for your views about the co - produced draft SEND strategy. A huge thank you to everyone who contributed their thoughts and ideas.

The engagement process ended in November 2018. Since then all feedback has been analysed and pulled together. A summary of it is available here. 

The SEND strategy is now being updated in light of the feedback.

During the next few months an action plan will be co - produced. A number of issues were mentioned many times by people taking part in the consultation e.g. the need for workforce development, accountability. These themes will be reflected in the action plan.

A wide range of individual views were provided as additional comments in the survey responses. These will be kept as a reference document for use during the development of the action plan.

During February a number of engagement workshops will be run across Cambridgeshire and in Peterborough to help us to shape the actions in the three priority areas for the 5 year plan. Each workshop will last 2 hours and be open to the community and practitioners. Further details of the location and times of the workshops will be available soon on this page.”
