Children and Young People SEN Engagement

As part of the survey, we encourage educational settings to run engagement sessions. We value feedback from children and young people about their own experiences.

These sessions give children and young people with SEN a voice. It shows them they can make a difference to the support they receive.

We have made the engagement sessions accessible and easy to run to ensure everyone can take part.
