There is a clear shortage of SEN educational provision for our children. Resulting in our children being allocated in mainstream school. What is Dudley going to do to ensure our children have a right to access education in specialist provision?
There is a clear need for more MLD and SLD settings are they going to extend or build more?
Q2 My child is currently in mainstream primary school but his needs are such that he will require specialist provisional for his older years (high school) I do not want the fight to get a place. I would like a smooth supportive transition to receive this. How do they propose in planning/preparing and allocating children these spaces.
Q3. What are they going to do to ensure effective communication with us as parents and our childs school?
Q4. How are they going to invest in our community to provide better SEN services that are accessible?
I myself work with children and the past year have witnessed the strain on SEYS who are incredible. but due to the pressures and cuts children are only receiving one term of outreach support which is 1 hour a week with a specialist TA and 1 hour with a specialist teacher. ( in which sometimes they are unable to attend due to meetings)
How do they plan to improve this ? Because a term is really not benefitting a child with SEN. Just as they build up trust and a relationship with them they loose the support.
Q6.How are they / are they going to support mainstream provision to provide better SEN for our children? Because it is frightening how little mainstream schools know how to meet the needs of SEN children and some are very old school and outdated.
