You told us that the Lancashire SEND Partnership has not been hearing your voice, and that by taking part in the series of spring 2021 'Think SEND' events you felt heard, valued and that your input would genuinely be reflected in the SEND Plan and its priorities.
All the information and feedback that over 160 people provided throughout the 'Think SEND' events has been collated, evaluated, and used to help us write this document. Your input has played a key role in creating the draft SEND Plan.
This is not the end. It is only the beginning of the journey we want to take with you at the centre.
With your help, Lancashire SEND Partnership wants a plan that can change, be added to, and be updated alongside the current and changing needs of the SEND Community. The SEND Plan is our strategic document and it provides the high level priorities, what benefits we expect to achieve, and the ways in which we will work on SEND matters. At the delivery levels we will then have a series of action plans. The timing of delivery will be determined through 3 categories:
- The must do’s – meeting our statutory duties
- The should do’s – improving the quality of what we deliver
- The could do’s – working towards a gold standard, with a continuous improvement approach
We welcome you taking time to read through the Draft SEND Plan, and for giving us feedback. Please refer to the final step of this ‘Time to Get Involved’ guide to find out what you can do next to tell us what you think of the Plan. Our only request is that you help us by being constructive so that we can learn from your contributions.
