We have a busy month ahead with training sessions and coffee mornings.
‘Lockdown: SEND Questions, Information and Advice.’
We have been hearing lots of questions about what the lockdown and school / college restrictions mean for children & young people with SEND and their families, and we have seen lots of different, often confusing information and advice going round.
Please join us on Monday 18th January for an informal online coffee morning – CEIAS will be joining us to explain the legal situation and help with impartial advice, as well as representatives from across the SEND partnership.
This will be an opportunity to get some clarity and share some suggestions for how things can work better
If you have any specific questions you’d like to submit please can you email them to email@example.com (put lockdown question in the title) and it will give people a chance to find any additional information they may need in advance.
‘SEND Virtual Coffee Morning – North’ (covering Macclesfield, Knutsford, Poynton, Wilmslow and surrounding areas.
Unfortunately, our North virtual coffee morning had to be cancelled last year, so we have rearranged this for Tuesday 19th January 2021. Come along and meet your local SEND team, ask questions and put faces to the names.
Register now on Eventbrite to secure your place. If you have a question for the SEND team, you can ask this in advance as you register to get an answer on the day, the team may not be able to answer questions immediately on the day.
EHCP – Annual Reviews – All you need to know- Training sessions
We are really excited to offer our members some training on EHCP Annual Reviews. The training will cover
- The legal framework relating to Education, Health and Care Plans
- The process and paperwork used by Cheshire East
- Some common pitfalls and myths
- Top Tips for Parent Carers
We know from our “What 3 things” Survey that this is one of the areas you wanted more information on, so we have asked Smart Bright Training & Consultancy to deliver some online sessions for our members.
You also told us that it’s tricky for some of you to take part in things during the daytime, so we are running the same session twice – a day time and one evening. Places are limited, so please only one per household. They will be offered to members on a first-come-first-served basis, and if all places are full we will start a waiting list.
Please click here if you prefer a day time session – Mon 25th January 10:00am – 12:00pm
If evenings are better for you please click here to book – Wed 20th January 1830pm-2030pm
We are looking to offer more members’ training soon – if you have any suggestions for what you would like us to cover then please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
