SEND Public Consultation: Proposed new bandings for children and young people with SEND
This consultation is running from 5 October to 1 December 2023
We're proposing to update and revise the top-up funding which is allocated to pupils attending a Haringey mainstream school with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or who have identified needs for SEND support in the Early Years. We’ve co-produced new descriptors with parents, carers, schools, health professionals, and psychologists and now we need your help to ensure they’re accurate, useful and fair. Now, we're seeking input from the public before the changes are finalised.
EHCP audit training events for Haringey SEND co-ordinators and headteachers
As part of the proposal, we're holding information and training events for special educational needs and disabilities co-ordinators (SENDCos), headteachers, parents, carers and school governors. Please find details of each below:
- 19 September to 21 November 2023
Please note: this training is only available for Haringey SEND Co-ordinators and Headteachers.
Join us for essential EHCP audit training designed for all Haringey SENDCos and headteachers. Given your busy schedules, we've designed these training sessions to be efficient and effective.
