During April and May 2016 West Sussex County Council held a consultation to determine how we could strengthen education for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We were delighted that so many West Sussex families and professionals took the time to respond to the consultation on the SEND strategy which has been co-produced with nurseries, schools, colleges, carers and parents.
83% of respondents agreed with the aims and objectives of the strategy and 79% agreed with our vision for how we could achieve these. The concerns that were raised in the consultation related to the unsuitability of mainstream education for all of the children with SEND, and cited the need for more funding for specialist support and more detail on how the recommendations would be delivered.
