North Lincolnshire Council is holding an event for parents and carers of children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) on Friday November 13 at the Learning Development Centre in Scunthorpe from 10am to 2.30pm.

It is an opportunity for parents and carers to share their ideas on what provisions they would like to see. And find out more about how the council is improving outcomes for children and young people with SEND.

At the event you can listen to what young people with special educational needs and disabilities have to say.

A number of guest speakers will also be at the event, including:

Dr Charlie Palmer from the Department for Education will talk about the implementation of the SEND reforms

Councillor David Rose, cabinet member for Children’s Services at North Lincolnshire Council

Darren Chaplin, Principal Officer – Vulnerable Children and Young People

Parents from the Parents’ Involvement and Participation (PIP) Forum

There will be some interactive workshops that will cover early years (aged nought to five), middle years (aged five to 11) and secondary to adult (aged 11 to 25).

Each workshop will provide an overview of where the council is with regards to implementing the SEND improvements and provide an opportunity for parents and carers to help shape future provision for that age phase so that it is even more responsive to local needs.

Browse round the stands on the day to get information and advice on a range of different services:

Special Educational Needs and Disability Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS)

Kaleidoscope – Action for Children

Parents’ Involvement and Participation (PIP) Forum

Council sports facilities – find out what activities children and young people can get involved in

Council transport team – find out what transport is available

Children’s centres – discover what they have on offer

Plus many more

It is a great opportunity to network, ask questions, make comments and share ideas.
