REMINDER: The consultations for the ‘Education and Skills Strategy’ and ‘Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Strategy’ are still live - Don’t miss out on the opportunity to have your say!

Public consultations for the “Education and Skills Strategy: A Partnership Framework for Staffordshire” and Staffordshire’s “Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Strategy” started in November the consultations will stay open until the 21st December 2018.

The consultation for the “Education and Skills Strategy: A Partnership Framework for Staffordshire” is a chance for you to have your say on the shared partnership vision for Staffordshire. It is not a county council document: it has been developed by a reference group of local education providers and partners, convened county council officers. The aspiration of all involved is that the final strategy gains widespread backing and shared ownership from education providers, partners and stakeholders from across the county and beyond.

At the same time, the county council launched consultation on their “Special Education Needs and Disabilities Strategy 2018 – 2021”. This strategy will reflect the vision and priorities to improve support for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities across Staffordshire. However, whilst part of the SEND Strategy focuses on educational opportunity and achievement, it also includes other aspects of improving the lives of children and young people with SEND and looks at the support they may need to fulfil their potential. The development of a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities strategy is a statutory requirement.

Please take the time to complete the consultations by following the below links:
