We have a survey on Nottinghamshire’s Local SEND Offer , which is for parents/carers, young people and staff to complete. The purpose of the survey is to gain feedback so we can see how we may need to develop the Local Offer moving forward.

 

There are a minimal amount of questions and it should only take a few minutes to complete at most.

 

The survey will go live on Monday 28th October and will last until Friday 15th November. The link to the survey is: https://consult.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/children-and-families-services/028820a7

We are keen to gather your thoughts on our new Relationships and Sex Education policy. If you would like to comment please email us directly at the Academy.

INSET date change

 

The INSET day due to be held on the 10th February 2020 has been moved to now take place on the 31st January.

We need your views about the Health Services for Children and Young People in Special Schools

Nottinghamshire County & City Councils are asking for the views of parents, carers, children and young people attending Special schools who use health services.  To do this we will be using co-production  as a way of working to bring together  families and professionals to review and shape provision. It ensures the following:

  •  Honesty
  •  Being listened to
  •  Promotes positive working relationships
  • Strong communication
  • Improved services for families

This survey and following event is for parents, carers, children and young people who have experience of health services in special schools. We want to hear you views about services such as  Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Continuing care or Health Support at home or school.  We are interested in hearing what is working well, what is not working, and any changes you would like to for the future.  You or your child may experience.

After this we will be hosting an Event on the 21st and 28th of November where  we will feedback your views and create a plan to improve services for the future.

This consultation opened on the 26th of September and will close on the 18th of October. The online questionnaire should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. The link can be found below.

NHS and Brexit: Working to ensure you receive medicines and medical products

 

Occasionally, the NHS does experience temporary disruption to supply of some medicines. The NHS has tried-and-tested ways of making sure you get your medicines and medical products, even under difficult circumstances.

In the unlikely event your medicine is temporarily unavailable, the NHS will work with you to prescribe the best alternative. This could typically be a different brand of medicine or perhaps lower strength medicines to make up the same dose.

On rare occasions it may mean a different medicine to do the same thing, but you will make the decision with your prescriber who will be provided with all the necessary information on how best to do this. This will ensure your treatment continues as normal. The NHS, through your local GP surgery, pharmacy and/or hospital, will help you to stay informed if there are any changes.

If you are concerned, please speak to your doctor or pharmacist.

NHS England initiative ‘Working Together for Change’ (WTfC) is the project that is aimed at engaging with parent/carers and Children and Young People (CYP) (Who are in/Have CYP in Special Schools in Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire) to ascertain what is working well, what is not working well and what is important for the future.

 

If you have time we would encourage you to complete the following survey:

Working Together for Change - Project Summary

Working Together for Change - Child or Young Person Questionaire

Working Together for Change - Parent Carer Questionaire

Working together for change - Statement for Parent-Carers and CYP

Dear Parents:

 

As well as threats to the welfare of children from within their families, we know that children may be vulnerable to abuse or exploitation from outside their families - referred to in Working Together 2018 as contextual safeguarding.   The risk of radicalisation is one  example and the Home Office has recently produced a fact sheet on the threat of far right extremism and the response to it, which you may find useful.

SAAND Project

 

At the University of Nottingham, we are interested in why children with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC) pay attention to the world differently and how this impacts how they learn information and develop skills.

If you have a child between the ages of 7-15 years old with a diagnosis of ASC, please consider taking part! Your child may also have additional learning difficulties.  We will cover travel expenses and providea £15 voucher for participation.
