This consultation has closed.

Overview

In Barnet, we are committed to providing high quality special educational needs provision, including specialist places in the borough for our children and young people who have special educational needs and have an Education, Health and Care Plan. All local authorities have to regularly review and update their plans about their special educational needs provision. This consultation seeks your views on the proposals about what type of special educational needs provision we need in Barnet in the future.

Background

Over the last two years, we have been working with families, schools and other professionals to plan what provision we need in Barnet. We currently have six special schools in Barnet, and 13 Additional Resource Provisions. As part of the review of our provision, we have undertaken a Needs Analysis to help us to plan for our future provision in Barnet, making sure we have enough and the right type of provision so that we can meet the needs of our children and young people with special educational needs in Barnet.

What are we consulting on?

We are your seeking views on our proposals for additional specialist provision for children and young people in Barnet who have special educational needs and are in receipt of an Education, Health and Care Plan.

Further information on our proposal is provided in our consultation document. The document also clearly sets out the information that we are using to inform the consultation proposals. In particular, it aims to:

  • describe the gaps we have in our special educational needs provision in Barnet;
  • present information on the type of provision we need in Barnet and where any additional provision could be;

  • show how we are proposing to use the remaining capital allocation from the Special Provision Fund (this is a capital grant of £5.1m allocated to Barnet by the Department for Education to support the development of specialist provision for children and young people with special educational needs).

The consultation is open to all residents in Barnet, and we are keen to hear from parent and carers of children and young people with special educational needs who have an Education, Health and Care Plan, and children and young people with special educational needs. We also welcome feedback from those who work with children and young people who have an Education, Health and Care Plan, including schools and educational settings in Barnet, and statutory and voluntary services who support children and young people with special educational needs.

How to have your say

Please take the time to read our consultation document and then complete our online questionnaire.
