From Clare Linfitt, SEN Services Manager, North East Lincolnshire Council.
I would like to invite you to attend a free SEND ‘My Plan’ workshop session for parents on Thursday 7th June or Wednesday, 20th June 2018 at 10.00am – 12.00am at the Crossland Suite, Grimsby Town Hall.
If a child or young person is identified as having a Special Educational Need and/or Disability (SEND), their educational setting should take action to remove barriers to learning and put effective special educational provision in place. This is called SEN Support. This is for children and young people with SEND but without an Education Health and Care Plan.
In North East Lincolnshire different nurseries, schools and colleges have their own way of recording the way they deliver SEN Support – you may have heard them called ‘Individual Education Plans’, ‘Personal Learning Plans’, ‘Pupil Passports’ etc. More schools are now choosing to use ‘My Plan’.
* My Plan is a way for settings to record this information in a format that is jargon free and dovetails in with the Single Assessment used in North East Lincolnshire.
* My Plan puts the child or young person at the centre of SEN decision making. It records how the pupil themselves would like to be supported and what goals or outcomes they are working towards.
* My Plan also records what the family, setting or other adults supporting the child or young person may be worried about, what is working well, and what needs to happen next.
* My Plan makes it easier if pupils move schools and help parents to be familiar with just one style of recording and reporting for their children.
If you would like to find out more about ‘My Plan’ and meet other parents with children with Special Educational Needs please book a place on one of the June workshops.
