Report of the Executive Director Families Children & Learning (copy attached)
RESOLVED: That the Committee noted the feedback from the consultation and endorsed the final SEND Strategy which includes a new timescale for delivery.
40.1 The Committee considered the report of the Executive Director Families Children & Learning which provided an analysis of the feedback from the recent consultation of the City’s draft new SEND Strategy. The report was introduced by the Assistant Director - Health SEN & Disabilities, the Head of SEN Statutory Services and was accompanied by Ms F England (PaCC), Ms D Boyd (PaCC) and Ms K Chipping (CCG).
40.2 Councillor Hills asked with regard to a consultation point of view, what had been learnt from this which could be applied to other strategies. Officers said it was important to listen to your target audience.
40.3 Councillor Hills referred to paragraph 3.19 and suggested that the reason why 30%, neither agreed or disagreed with the governance arrangements was that they didn’t understand the question and the notion of governance, and asked how that could be made clearer for future consultation. Officers agreed that the meaning of governance could be clearer and said that that word had been removed from the final document.
40.4 Councillor Brown asked if the Committee would receive an update on the delivery of the strategy and was advised that the intention was to provide an annual report to the Committee.
40.5 RESOLVED: That the Committee noted the feedback from the consultation and endorsed the final SEND Strategy which includes a new timescale for delivery.
