South Tyneside SENDIASS Update
Harton Academy has been asked by SENDIASS (a service offered to help provide information, advice and support to parents / carers of children with additional needs, jointly commissioned by South Tyneside Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and South Tyneside Council) to share the following:
The Government is currently looking for feedback on the SEND green paper recommendations. We’ve been asked by the organisations partnered with the DofE to lead on SEND participation to exploring putting together an opportunity for young people in South Tyneside to provide their feedback.
There’ll be three different sessions available – Two focussing on transitions (which is being led by young people) and one further topic.
Here is a document that explains briefly what the opportunity is and how young people can get involved if they’re interested.
Young people or their parents can get in touch directly to discuss the opportunity. Our website also has the facility for families to make a referral themselves.
Here is a copy of the updated young people’s pocket guide which was co-produced with the Autistic Young People’s group last year, which explains the SENDIASS offer to young people. It also includes information about our SEND Youth Forum (open to 14+).
