Please understand the Dudley Parent Carer Forum can not and does not deal with individual personal cases but will feed back the collective views and experiences to the SEND Partnership Board and other Strategic Boards that may serve to improve SEND service delivery across Dudley

"Special schools are good - but in the past year have been filled with extra children and now the classes are too big. The children are becoming challenging as their needs are not being properly met

"Cherry Trees is not appropriate for complex children with SEN and medical needs, what are the LA / CCG doing for them?"

" Dudley may have social activities/groups running for SEN children/ young adults but who informs us of this - how do we find out if some severe people may need to be excluded from some activities and more mild people need support with inclusion?"

"New ASD bases - there needs to be more training to the schools as you are putting bases in schools that cannot meet these children's needs."

"What is the plan for the 44 (at least) children without a school place and about their 're profiling cohort / provision' plans to shift our MLD kids into mainstream?"

If a child's needs can not be met by a MLD school and all SLD schools are full and can not provide a place will the service provide support in getting the child placed in a special school out of borough rather than placing them in a mainstream school where they will massively struggle?"

"what is happening with the 44 children currently without a school place, plus the additional numbers of SEN children of nursery age - there is not enough provision for them?

In draft actions for statement of action 1.2a re profiling of SEND cohort and provision does this mean you will move MLD children into mainstream? will EHCPs need reviewing? how will you assess such children and what about parental preference?"
