Leeds City Council are working with range of partners, including children and young people and families, to produce a new SEND and Inclusion strategy for children and young people in Leeds and their families.
The new strategy aims to make Leeds a child-friendly and truly inclusive city for children and young people who have SEND or additional needs. We know from talking to young people, families and partners, that many of our children and young people with SEND or additional needs have good experiences of learning and living in Leeds. We also know that some do not, and we need to change this.
We would really like to share our progress on the strategy so far with you, and share our first draft which has been shaped by the views of all partners. We would really like to get your feedback and make sure that we continue to take all views into account, as we work to complete the strategy. We are offering information and feedback sessions on Zoom, in June and July, and all are welcome! Practitioners and leaders in schools, settings and services, parents and carers, and partners running voluntary groups, are all very welcome to join us.
Find out more about the sessions and reserve a place, please see our Leeds Local Offer website. We can also deliver Zoom sessions for schools, settings, or groups who would like to host one, or send the materials to deliver the session yourself. For more information contact Natalie from the Learning Inclusion Service on 07891 279105.
