SEND Bulletin July 2020

 

 


Edition 11 -  Thursday 9 July 2020

Spotlight on...  East Riding SEND Local Offer information - Parent Carer Survey -  “You Said… We Did”
The Families Information Service Hub (FISH) consulted with parent carer regarding their views on how information is communicated. The survey/consultation was conducted at the Preparing for Adulthood Event in October 2019, via surveys in the bulletins during summer 2019 and spring 2020, and via several parent carer groups sharing the link.
Thank you to those groups who shared the survey link and to the parent carers for taking the time to complete the survey.
The “You Said…. We Did”, along with the results of the survey, have been published on the SEND Local Offer website.

If you know of any activities (including virtual ones) that are going ahead during the summer months, please will you tell us about them so we can promote them in the SEND Local Offer bulletin and let other families know about them.
