Secondary School Reps Required for the new Education, Health & Care Panel

To be completed by: Fri 30 Mar 2018

Time: -Fri 30 Mar 2018 | Venue:

Would you like to be a Secondary School Representative for the new Education, Health and Care Panel?

Since our Education, Health and Care Panel was recently launched we have had a brilliant response from Primary Schools, signing up as volunteers for the panel.

We are once again inviting all Secondary School Headteachers/SENCOs to reconsider becoming a member of the panel?

This is an exciting opportunity for school colleagues to make a significant contribution to Education, Health and Care decisions and we look forward to receiving your support.

Following the peer challenge there were a number of areas requiring development;  a critical area being the need for a multi-agency approach to the decision making in relation to Education, Health and Care assessments, funding and placements.  Health and Social Care are highly committed to ensuring that we have a multi-agency approach to managing the EHC process.

In order to ensure that we have transparency and a robust decision making process we require Secondary School Headteacher/Senior SEND members of staff representation on the EHC Panel.  

We are asking colleagues to commit to attending the EHC Panel for one full day (8:30 – 17:00), each half term.  Colleagues will also be asked to undertake prior reading of panel papers.  We are aware that this is a significant commitment of your valuable time, however, this is an essential priority for the SEND transformation and your support to this is vital.

If you are interested and would like to join us, please email:
