Huge thanks to our NW colleagues in Lancashire for sharing the following example of practice.
The Lancashire SEND partnership
The Lancashire SEND Partnership was formed following the Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) joint inspection of special educational needs and disability (SEND) services in their local area.
The partnership brings together all the agencies in Lancashire which provide the SEND services for children, young people, their parents and carers. It ensures everybody can work together to provide the best outcomes for children, young people and their families, with representatives who use the service.
Parents, carers, young people and professionals have all been involved with creating the new values for the Lancashire SEND Partnership. They are:
Inclusion: Belonging and involvement
Integrity: Honesty, trust and fairness
Respect: Value, regard and reliability
“These values will guide the way we behave towards each other and help create a culture of understanding.”
