WarrPAC SEND Survey 23/24 now live

SEND Survey 23-24

Calling all parents and carers….


I know what you are thinking, another survey?  However, as a valued member of the SEND (Special Education Needs and Disabilities) community, it is essential we gather your views on what is happening around SEND services across Education, Health and Social Care in Warrington.

In order to measure any difference in the five-year improvement plan it is important we establish a baseline to monitor and exact change going forward.    We are asking you, the experts, to get involved, get your voice heard and provide that vital information about your lived experience of SEND, the good the bad and the ugly.
The survey will take approximately 10 -15 mins depending on the level of input you decide to include.  There is also an opportunity within the survey to make comments and suggestions in order to improve your experience of services and support.

How we will use the information.

All information provided will remain confidential and anonymised.  It will only be used for the purpose of the survey. After analysis a report will be published that will inform our work going forward to improve the experience of children, young people and their families living with SEND in Warrington.  There will also be opportunities for you to feedback.

How will we use this survey to make a difference?

  • Outcome-focussed: To ensure that the information from the survey is Outcomes-focussed and to work with the LA and health to transform how services are delivered..
  • Evidence-based: which is  data-driven and delivery-focussed. We will take a partnership approach to working with professionals  to create robust plans which are measurable and sustainable.
  • Rooted in co-production: It is mandatory for professionals to work  with Parent Carer Forums, so any program of work needs to be co-produced, bespoke, and based on detailed evidence  – balancing visibility and assurance with local autonomy to genuinely add value to existing work and work that will come off the back of this survey to achieve shared outcomes.
