Nottinghamshire County Council - High Needs Review Consultation

You will find below the link to the Nottinghamshire County Council website, where there is a consultation you are welcome to complete. The consultation is regarding proposed updates to arrangements for supporting schools and other educational settings to make additional provisions for children and young people with complex SEND (High needs).

Why they are consulting: 

  • To outline the rationale and early thinking on the proposed re-shaping of high needs funded services and provision
  • To outline proposed new ways of working in response to the impact of the Children and Families Act 2014 and the resultant challenges on budgets and services.
  • To share information about the scope of the consultation process
  • To receive initial feedback arising from consultation discussions

The link takes you to a powerpoint with more details and a related letter from the Secretary of State for Education, Damien Hinds.

The Consultation closes on 15th February so if you want to complete a questionaire, it will need to be done prior to this date.
