It has been described to us at SGPC HQ as being like "Falling off a cliff", a terrifying metaphor but it does capture quite well the sense SEND parents can have of knowing where you are and having a direction for your child's education only to then reach the Post 16 phase and the ground beneath you and the firm footing you thought you had just disappears.
Let us set the scene, you have been parachuted into an unknown land without notice, the people around you are speaking a language that is unfamiliar and confusing, you didn't know you would be here so you weren't able to plan or prepare or buy that helpful Lonely Planet Guide for your journey. You know you have to make it to a destination and need the help of others to get there, but you don't know who they are, who is out there
Our booking line is open for our SEN information event.
AT last we have the new DRAFT SEN code of practice to consult on. We can not stress how important this is to families with children with SEN please do read bits and let us know what you think.
