If you want to keep up with the very latest on how things are progressing towards the September deadline for the introduction of SEND reforms then the following packs pull together information from the 20 Pathfinder authorities who are blazing the trail for reform.
There is a mountain of stuff to wade through here, but each pack has a contents page so you can, hopefully, skip to the bits you may be interested in. These packs are being used by the workstreams in Derbyshire to guide thinking about how to implement the reforms here.
For information: the EHC Plan will replace statements; parents and young people with SEND will be able to apply for a Personal Budget if they want to; the Local Offer will be a guide to what services are available in your area; Joint Commissioning relates to education, health and care working together to provide services; Preparing for adulthood addresses provision up to 25 and not 18 as at present.Please click on the links below to access the following information packs:
