Local Area SEND revisit
Consultation on the High Needs Block proposals for April 2020-March 2021
The Local Authority (LA) recently undertook a consultation on a proposal relating to the High Needs Block (HNB) funding for April 2020 onwards. This consultation ended on the 10 July 2019.
Following the end of the consultation more work, discussions and consultations will be taking place. The detail of these can be found in this letter to parents, schools and early years settings.
We have been listening to feedback from parents, carers, schools and our stakeholders. They told us they do not like the name of the service, so we have taken the decision to do the following:
From the 1st September:
The Disability Enablement Service will now be called the SEND Service
Assessment Planning and Review Officers will now be called SEN Officers
We will update you with further news about the service over the next few weeks.
