Send briefing

SEND briefing

Agenda items

  • Funding for high needs pupils, both pre- and post-16

  • Developing the policy and procedures necessary to implement successfully the SEND reforms outlined in the Children and Families Bill


School funding overview

School Funding Overview

  • All funding for SEN (high need) pupils age 2 to 25 comes to the LA as part of the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG)

  • The grant for 2014/15 is £148.7m and must be shared across schools via the Schools Forum – new formula introduced this year

  • The grant is made up of “3 blocks” (Schools/Early Years/High Needs) but it’s for LAs to allocate this to meet needs

The swindon local offer plans progress

The Swindon Local OfferPlans & Progress

  • Work is currently focussed on two objectives:

    • Developing coproduction and ongoing involvement and feedback mechanisms

    • Creating and publishing the Local Offer

  • These objectives are to be met by September 2014, after which there will be continuing development work


Coproducing the local offer

Coproducing the Local Offer

  • Working with the Parent Carers Forum and STEP

  • Children and families will work with us to coproduce:

    • New systems, such as the Education, Health & Care Plan

    • The information contained in the Local Offer

    • The ongoing coproduction mechanisms for reviewing and developing the Local Offer


Coproducing the local offer1

Coproducing the Local Offer

  • We must annual collate feedback on the Local Offer, publish a summary and the Local Authority’s response

  • How will feedback be gathered?

    • Complaints and compliments

    • Newly developed feedback mechanisms e.g. annual event for children and families, surveys, mystery shopping etc

    • Collated information from Education, Health & Care Plans?

  • How will the Local Offer develop as a result?

    • Local Authority’s response regarding the services it provides and commissions

    • Publishing market intelligence and responses from other providers?


Publishing swindon s local offer

Publishing Swindon’s Local Offer

  • 4 sets of information make up the Swindon Local Offer:

    • The SBC Offer covering the assessment and planning process

    • Overarching information on the types of support available (transport, leisure, education etc)

    • A directory of services available to Swindon children and families: universal, targeted and specialist, linking to…

    • Provider Local Offers: your description of your service offer, published on your website


Swindon local offer website

Swindon Local Offer Website

  • Developed using the Adult Information & Advice website platform

  • An iterative roll out:

    • Sept 14: Core information (the web pages) and simple directory (contact information and links through to provider websites)

    • Future development: full search options, a ‘shopping basket’ to collate support, provider login to their directory entry, integration with EHCP?
