Oxfordshire County Council – Consultation on support for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Oxfordshire

January 20, 2022

Consultation on support for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Oxfordshire

Introduction

We are running two consultations on plans to develop a more inclusive approach to supporting children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Oxfordshire.

These consultations are interlinked and run together between Monday 10 January and Thursday 10 March 2022:

  • The council and its partners are seeking views on a draft Local Area SEND Strategy to develop high quality services across education, health, and social care to support children and young people and their families.
  • Oxfordshire County Council’s proposals for system reform for SEND include making more high quality SEND education available closer to home, reducing reliance on out of county provision, and improving educational outcomes for children through closer partnerships between the council and schools.

Have your say

We want to hear your views. We will consider all feedback given and this will inform Oxfordshire County Council’s system reform for SEND, and the final Local Area SEND Strategy.

In the feedback survey below you can respond to one or both of the consultations.

Roadshows will be held online during the consultation, but if national and local guidelines relating to COVID-19 allow, in-person events may be considered. At these sessions, senior leaders will introduce the two SEND consultations, explain the proposals and answer any questions that you may have.

The roadshows will take place on MS Teams and are open to anybody who wishes to attend.
They are being held on the following dates and times:

Monday 31 January: 5.00pm – 6.30pm

Thursday 3 February: 8.30am – 10.00am

Saturday 5 February: 9.00am – 10.30am

Wednesday 9 February: 2.30pm – 4.00pm
