Special Educational Needs and Disability Experience Survey

We are asking parent carers to tell us about their experiences of using Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) services over the last six months so we can monitor the impact of the actions we are taking to improve the support available. The findings of this survey will be compared against the findings of a previous survey we put out last summer. You can read the results of that survey and the actions we have taken in response here.

The feedback we capture as part of these surveys is really important as it helps us to understand the experience of local people and shape our plans in response to a reinspection of our SEND services carried out by Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in November 2022. You can read more about this in our Accelerated Progress Plan.

We are interested in whether your experiences of SEND services over the last 6 months met your individual or family needs, and whether you are aware of the full range of support available in relation to neurodiversity, speech, language and communication needs and Education, Health and Care Plans.

Thank you very much for taking the time to complete this survey.  Your responses are anonymous, and we are not able to link them to you.  Your feedback will only be used to help improve our services, and not for any other purpose.
