Improving support descriptions for children with SEND

Haringey Council aimed to update and revise the language used to describe the needs of children with SEND. 

New Banding Descriptors for children and young people with an Education, Health Care Plan (EHCP) were co-produced with parents, carers, schools, health professionals, and psychologists. 

The public consultation was the final step in gathering feedback and insight from the public to refine and finalise the Banding Descriptors for accuracy.

The public consultation lasted 8 weeks, from 5 October 2023 to 1 December 2023. We organised online and in-person events across Haringey to allow everyone to share their thoughts, ask questions, and participate.
