  • We're listening
    We want to hear from you

Give us your views on special educational needs and disabilities in the City - 9 March

We want to hear from children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), and gather the views of their parents and carers, about SEND services based in the City. That way, we can continue to tailor our services around your needs.

You can tell us what you think – take part in a webinar on Friday 9 March at 10am.

The webinar will be led by an Ofsted representative, who will ask you about your views and experiences on how effectively the City of London local area is:

  • identifying the needs of children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities
  • meeting the needs of these children and young people so that their outcomes and chances of participating fully in society improve.

You can read the guidance for parents and carers on the Department for Education’s website.

Many thanks for taking part in this process.

If you have any questions, please email the SEND Inspection Team.

The Children and Families team work to ensure children and young people in the City of London are kept safe and provided with the best possible services.

​Current consultations

The draft Children and Young People’s Plan 2018-21 consultation

The Children and Young People's Plan (CYPP) is the overarching strategy that sets a framework for our vision for children and young people in the City for the next three years. It outlines:

  • what the issues are for our children and young people
  • how we plan to address them
  • what we hope to achieve.

In the development of this draft plan, we engaged with young people who live and learn in the City and those who care and provide for them. We used this local intelligence, together with data, to determine the vision and priorities of the plan.
