Planning specialist provision for the future

Hertfordshire County Council has set up a Specialist Provsion working group – their purpose is to plan and improve how the county’s specialist provision can cater for the future needs of the majority of the county’s children and young people with complex special educational needs or disabilities (SEND).

 This work has to date included:

  • A comprehensive analysis of pupils with Education, Health and Care Plans
  • HPCI obtaining feedback from families with a child in an out of area placement and forming recommendations to address the issues raised. This data was also used in the application for the successful Special Free School Bid (see more about this here)
  • A more rigorous process for identifying pupils with high needs who are at risk of out of county specialist placements has been put in place
  • Admissions Guidance for specialist provision has been refreshed and published here on the Local Offer.

We will bring you a workstream update in the November issue of SEND news.

Coming soon . . . your chance to tell us what you think about our SEND IASS service (Previously known as Parent Partnership)
