Usually on a Wednesday afternoon one of our Parent Reps attends the SEND pathways working group where we are going through each stage of the Education Health and Care Plan process from requesting an assessment to annual reviews. We are joined by members from the 0-25 Team, Health commissioners and Health providers, Supportive Parents and Kids are all involved so we have a wealth of knowledge and experience around the table.
All trying to make the system better in South Glos.
As a group we have worked on the EHCP needs assessment process. The group were involved in the revamping all the letters , sorting out a process. Writing guidance for the ECHP needs assessment/process, writing the term of Ref for the 0-25 SEND panel . The new process is being introduced over the next few months and we are eagerly waiting for new IT to make this more productive.
