SEND and Inclusion Strategy Young Peoples Survey

Closed 21 Dec 2018

Opened 12 Nov 2018

Feedback Updated 29 Apr 2019

We Asked

In November 2018 we asked for comments on the SEND & Inclusion Strategy and in particular on the:

  • Vision statement
  • Priorities
  • Measures for success

You Said

In total 274 responses to the survey were received, of which 145 were parents, 88 were staff and 41 were any other type of respondent. 88 young people responded to the learner’s survey. A full quantitative and qualitative analysis was carried out. 

The majority of respondents agreed with the proposed vision and priorities, with over 70% agreeing or strongly agreeing. However, the qualitative comments revealed a disconnect between the vision and the current experience with many commenting on either a poor experience or that they were pessimistic about change without additional resources. Comments were also made on a range of other matters including gaps in services, support and provision, clarification of terms, and workforce skills.

Over 50% of respondents agreed with the measures for success, however many asked for a shorter number of measures and clarity on how these linked to key activities.

We Did

trategy document was revised following these workshops and meetings.

The vision statement was revised and made more aspirational and positive.

The priorities were agreed. In order to address the disconnect, and ensure that the strategy is honest about the current position, a number of quotations were added from the consultation responses highlighting challenges and opportunities.

The headline activities of the delivery plan, addressing concerns raised, were also included in the revised strategy document.

Further to this, some of the language has been changed and terms clarified.

The measures for success section was revised to show the golden thread of priorities, to key activities, to measures for success.
