You Said We Did

The Statutory Assessment Request (STAR) Panel

You Said

Parents and professionals at the STAR Panels found it very formal: meetings were around a large table which made the experience daunting.

We Did

We removed the table, and STAR Panels are now conducted in a circle, creating a more informal and supportive atmosphere.
 

Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)

You Said

Parents felt like their experiences of completing the Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) process were not being taken into consideration.

We Did

We created a feedback questionnaire to ensure that parent’s voices are heard.
 

Children in the Early Years

You Said

You told us our support services for children aged 0-5 were inconsistent. They were not always coordinated and families sometimes had a number of different services working on the same problem at the same time. Children with needs that take longer to identify, such as communication difficulties, were also not always identified until the child entered school: this meant they had not been accessing the correct support they needed.

We Did

We created the Special Education Needs, Early Years Panel to underpin the early identification and monitoring of children with Special Educational Needs. There is now a clear pathway of support which puts the child and their family at the heart of everything while supporting school readiness to create successful transitions to school. Preschool children with possible additional needs can be referred to the panel by a range of professionals.
