Why complete a Passport for Life To help professionals and communities understand your child. How their additional need, disability or SEND affects them. How they can be best supported to access what is important to them. Families have control over their child’s information and a family led document this will be important to you. Held securely via website and information lands back into PODS .
The One Page Profile A way for parents to share their expertise about their child. A single sheet – one page! Personalisation agenda is embedded in the SEN Reforms under the Children & Families Act (2014). Developed by Helen Sanderson Associates and by Family Footings. Gives a positive, practical and useful framework to share information about young people. It will tell you: what is important to your child, what people like about your child and how best to support them
Why complete a One Page Profile It’s part of the Passport for Life Project... Written by people who really know the child over a period of time. Better understanding of the young person as an individual. Maintain consistency for how the young person is supported. Guidance on how to support and engage with your young person in a positive and effective manner. Use it when child/YP attends a new setting, a new place, local clubs Share most important things that people need to know. To update understanding when something changes (eg moving schools) Tailored information to specific settings – school, childminder, dentis, Brownies, Taxi escort
