Children and Young People with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) - Living a Good Ordinary Life

Closes 2 Oct 2019

Opened 11 Jul 2019


We believe that Wolverhampton should be a city where everyone is included.

Children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), and their families, should have what they need to live ordinary, happy, healthy lives.

We want to hear from you, our city’s children and young people with SEND, about your ideas.

If you need an adult to help you with this survey, there is a help sheet for them at the bottom of this page.

There is also an easier to read version of the survey questions with pictures.

If you are a parent or carer of a child with SEND, please tell us your views using the Voice4Parents survey here:

If you are a specialist SEND professional, or work with children with SEND as part of a broader professional remit, please tell us your views here:

Why We Are Consulting

The Wolverhampton Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Partnership and Commissioning Board make important decisions.

People on the Board come from different organisations.

They work together to find the best ways to help children and young people live good, ordinary lives.

To help the Board, we are writing a report called a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment - or JSNA for short.

It will have information about the needs of local children and young people with SEND.

It will also have information about ways to help children and young people to do their best.

This is a survey to find out the things that are important to you as children and young people with SEND.

What Happens Next?

When we have finished collecting your answers we will put what you told us into the JSNA report.

The Board will use the report to decide what to do to make good changes for the future. The JSNA will be put on our website so that everyone can read it.

Thank you for being part of this important project.
