SEND Post 16 Provision: 9:30 - 12:30 19th March 2020 at Pudsey Civic Hall
Dear Education, Health and Care Colleagues,
You are invited to discuss the future direction of SEND Post 16 provision at Pudsey Civic Hall from 9:30-12:30 on the 19th of March 2020.
As part of the wider discussion of the development and future of our universal post 16 offer we will discuss how we can provide the best offer to meet the needs of our learners with Special Educational Need and Disability (SEND): providing pathways to give choices and opportunities for inclusive and specialist post 16 provision within the city.
Our aim is to work with partners and agencies so we can deliver post 16 provision for all our young people that prepares them for independence, achieving success and that improves their outcomes in line with the 3As strategy.
We acknowledge that the outcomes for many of our pupils with SEND, particularly those with SEND Support needs, are not as good as they could be. We would like to share with you the data that tells the current story and invite you to share your thoughts of how we turn this curve.
If you wish to attend please register though Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/send-post-16-offer-tickets-95218532193

Increased Detail and Images - New offers will include more detail and images to support you to make informed decisions about the items you wish to purchase.
