3 The new SEN system is underpinned by a number of key principles. Early identification of needHigh expectations and aspirations for what C&YP with SEND can achieve.Focus on outcomes that C&YP and their families want to achieve.Choice and control over the support they/their children receive.Participation is central, person- centred planning is key.Greater collaboration between Education Health and Care.Clarity of roles and responsibilities.High quality provision.A skilled workforce to deliver excellent outcomes.Co-production is an important feature of these reforms.

5 Co-production“Co-production means delivering public services in an equal and reciprocal relationship between professionals, people using services, their families and their neighbours. Where activities are co-produced in this way, both services and neighbourhoods become far more effective agents of change.” Boyle and Harris, 2009, The Challenge of Co-production.Parent carers are central to and key partners in the SE7 SEND Pathfinder activity which is a learning process for all parties.In our Pathfinder, effective parent carer co-production is whereparent carers have conversations with and work alongside professionals in order to design, develop and improve services.
6 Draft legislation - key highlights New requirement for local authorities, health and care services to commission services jointly, to ensure that the needs of disabled children and young people and those with SEN are met.LAs to publish a clear, transparent ‘local offer’ of services, so parents and young people can understand what is available.More streamlined assessment process, which integrates education, health and care services, and involves children and young people and their families.New 0-25 Education, Health and Care Plan, replacing the current system of Statements and Learning Difficulty Assessments, which reflects the child or young person’s aspirations for the future, as well as their current needs.New statutory protections for young people aged in FE and a stronger focus on preparing for adulthood.Academies, Free Schools, Further Education and Sixth Form colleges to have the same SEN duties as maintained schools.Option of a personal budget for families and young people with a Plan, extending choice and control over their support.
