It is that time of year again when the SPCN annual parent/carer satisfaction survey goes live from 13 October to 9 November. This is a chance for ALL parents and carers of children and young adults with any additional need to have their say on education, health and social care services within Suffolk, and it is not limited to children/young people with EHCPs, but includes those on SEN Support and those with any additional need and/or disability even if they are not receiving additional support in school. Every voice is VERY IMPORTANT and it is only through collective voices that we can ever hope to change things.
This year’s survey responses are more important than ever as we will be presenting them to the Department of Education and NHS England at their next Monitoring visit to Suffolk at the end of November.
