We are now consulting on Sheffield’s new Inclusion Strategy and we'd like your feedback.

Help shape future support for those with special educational needs

Sheffield City Council, NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group and Sheffield’s Parent Carer Forum have worked together to draft an inclusion strategy. It explains how we, as a city, improve in meeting the needs of our children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

Developing this strategy involved:

  • co-production sessions in October (over 60 people attended)
  • the views of young people taking part in discussion groups
  • a strategy survey
  • the Parent Carer Forum’s State of Sheffield survey (over 700 responses)

The strategy will run for five years and set the priorities for how Sheffield supports its children and young people with additional needs. 

Tell us what you think

We recently asked people to let us know what they thought of our draft strategy, the support that's currently available and how they think it could be improved.

You can see who we spoke to and what they told us here.

This feedback will now help influence the final strategy and an action plan for delivering the strategy across Sheffield.

Joint local area SEND inspection in Sheffield

In February 2022, we had a SEND inspection revisit. It was carried out by Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The inspection revisit looked at the support for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities. The inspection revisit found that we have made sufficient progress in six of the seven areas of weakness.
