Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Survey

This survey has now closed - thank you to those who participated.


Children and young people with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) and their families in Shropshire are being asked for their views on how they would like to receive information about SEND services and how they could be more involved in decisions about those services.

The call out from Shropshire’s 0-25 Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) Board, which includes representatives from education, health and social care and voluntary organisations, is for local children and young people aged 0-25 with SEND, and their families, to complete the online survey to find out:

  • how they would like to receive information
  • what information they would like to receive
  • how they would like to be involved in the decision making and planning process for individual support
  • how we can involve them in developing and improving services.

The aim of this survey is to put the views of these children and young people and their families at the heart of the process so they can help shape future SEND services and support provided in Shropshire.

Feedback from the survey will help the SEND Board to develop an effective communication and participation strategy for Shropshire. This will help them improve the way they communicate with children and young people and their families and will help them put together the right information that they need through the communication channels of their choice. It will also help to ensure that children and young people with SEND and their families have a genuine voice in local decision making and designing their own support.
