Thank you to everyone who took part in our surveys over the 4 days mid April, we took the reports to the Local Authority and are being presented at the SEND Stakeholder Meeting Wednesday 25th April.
This Stakeholder Meeting is a multi agency meeting with professionals from health, education, commissioning, schools and not forgetting parent/carers from Derbyshire Parent Carer Voice representing parent/carers around the county. Also at this meeting ideas and views are taken forward and thanks to your input on these Snap Surveys we have evidence to question and request information from the Local Authority and recommend changes.
Within the reports below, there is a report from 2017 with the same GRIP questions to compare. All the information is confidential and at the end of each report are the results from Survey Monkey to evidence the content.
Once again thank you for your time.
