Voice of Children and Young People

SEND Strategy development for 2021 to 2025

You may be aware, the review of the SEND Strategy 2017 to 2021 is underway, we are now starting to look ahead at SEND priorities for 2021 to 2025 and how best to achieve these.

To help Worcestershire Children First shape future aspirations and priorities we would like to hear the voice and views of our children and young people with special educational needs and/or disability.

An activity pack has been developed to help parents and carers, schools and health professionals work with children and young people to discuss their experiences and views on how we can make Worcestershire a better place to learn, work and live if you have a special educational need and/or disability.

The pack has 3 different activities of varying lengths and detail, you can choose which activity will be best to support your child to voice their views and experiences. You can use our activities, or you can simply use them as a guide.

Responses to the activities will be confidential and no names will be used. For writing the SEND Strategy we may want to discuss themes from the responses given or use examples but they will be anonymised.

Date for return: 30 April 2021

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping us to capture our children and young people views as we work together to improve the lives of children and young people in Worcestershire.
