Your role within SEND Peer Challenge

East Midland Priorities and Key Lines of Enquiry

There are currently five dominant priorities for the East Midlands region:

i. Managing SEND finances (High Needs Block, commissioning places, etc.)
ii. Increasing the proportion of SEND children having a successful school placement near home, both through more mainstream SEND inclusion and the smarter management of total provision.
iii. Creating and implementing a graduated response.
iv. Working effectively with partners, especially health and family-facing activity (e.g. Parent Carer forums, SENDIASS, tribunals) to ensure that processes are 'in balance' and working effectively to meet needs.
v. The quality assurance of Education and Health Care Plans (EHCP) educational outcomes and preparation for adulthood (PfA)
