2 By the end of the session you will be aware of: The Principles of the Children and Families Act 2014 The requirement to make Annual Reviews ‘person centred’ The benefits of taking this approach How this might look 2

3 Buckinghamshire County Council Children and Families Act 2014 Section 19 makes clear - LAs, must have regard to: the views, wishes and feelings of the child or young person, and the child’s parents the importance of the child or young person, and the child’s parents:  participating as fully as possible in decisions  being provided with information and support to enable participation in those decisions to support the child or young person, and parents, to help them achieve the best possible educational and other outcomes, preparing them effectively for adulthood 3

4 Buckinghamshire County Council 9.22 The assessment and planning process should: Focus on the child or young person as an individual be easy for children, young people and their parents or carers to understand (clear ordinary language and images No professional jargon) highlight the child or young person’s strengths and capabilities enable the child or young person, and those that know them best to say what they have done, what they are interested in and what outcomes they are seeking in the future tailor support to the needs of the individual deliver an outcomes-focused and co-ordinated plan for the child or young person and their parents This approach is often referred to as a person-centred approach. 4

5 Buckinghamshire County Council The Person Centred Approach Person Centred Planning is a way of enabling Young People to think about what they want now and in the Future. It is about supporting them to make plans, work towards their goals with the right support 5

6 Buckinghamshire County Council Person Centred Approach Suggested Headings: What we like and admire about… What is working well What is important to… What is important for… What is not working What are the outcomes Action Plan 6

7 Buckinghamshire County Council The benefits of PCP Values the child / young person and parents input Reinforces ownership Promotes a supportive team around the child / young person – Key working rather than keyworker Aims to motivate the child / young person by focussing on the positives and celebrating these Plans are individualised Shared planning, problem solving and commitment lead to better outcomes Models mutual respect that aims to promote continual process of listening, learning and action planning 7

8 Buckinghamshire County Council Outcomes A move away from objectives to outcomes Focussed on the young person/child in the context of the family- person centred Are not about the intentions/ needs of the professional Raise aspirations Use action verbs – performance orientated Typically written in the future tense Holistic- multi- professional Tell us what will happen (or is expected to happen) after a specified intervention Are evidence based- the stronger the base the stronger the outcomes Imply greater accountability Reflect longer term outcomes (e.g. end of a key stage) 8

9 Buckinghamshire County Council The Mental Capacity Act 8.21 The right of young people to make a decision is subject to their capacity to do so as set out in the Mental Capacity Act The underlying principle of the Act is to ensure that those who lack capacity are empowered to make as many decisions for themselves as possible and that any decision made or action taken on their behalf is done so in their best interests. Decisions about mental capacity are made on an individual basis, and may vary according to the nature of the decision. Someone who may lack capacity to make a decision in one area of their life may be able to do so in another. There is further guidance on the Mental Capacity Act and how it applies both to parents and to young people in relation to the Act in Annex 1, Mental Capacity. 9

10 Buckinghamshire County Council Mediation The Children and Families Act 2014 provides the opportunity for parents and young people to go to mediation before they can register an appeal with the First-tier Tribunal (Special Educational Needs and Disability) Parents and young people will also be able to go to mediation about the health and social care elements of an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan. The aim is to promote early resolution of disputes through non-judicial means. Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). ADR mechanisms serve to resolve disputes generally by involving a neutral third party. The LA must provide information about these services No one who provides mediation information or conducts mediation sessions can be directly employed by a local authority in England. People from voluntary organisations who are contracted by local authorities to provide mediation/ ADR services can act as mediation advisers or as mediators. 10
