On 22nd July parents and carers (P/Cs) of children and young people with SEND in Newcastle met with Deanne Taylor the Head of SEND at Newcastle Council, to ask questions about SEND services and raise any concerns. The meeting was held by ‘teams’, not ideal and great for everyone, but better than not managing to meet at all. 17 parents and carers joined the call.
We thank you all for your contributions. This note includes Deanne’s response to the questions asked on the day and other questions that have been received. We have tried to group them by topic. I hope we have captured all your questions but if you cannot spot your question (some were difficult to catch over teams) or are not satisfied with the responses please let me know.
