Consultations 2021

SEND Charter Consultation February 21

We have been asked by the Local Authority to share the draft SEND Charter for parent carer and stakeholder group feedback.

We have copied the introduction papragraphs of the draft Charter below, you can download the complete draft charter and email any suggestions to

The charter intends a high level set of values and attitudes agreed by all stakeholders with regard to how we approach SEND. Getting these right gives a tool by which to influence and pick up where we fall short, and more positively, a framework to celebrate when we are all working well together.
Alongside the charter, the intention is that this would be underpinned by various processes that support its values and provide a frame work for interaction between the LA, Cognus, Schools, Parents/Carers, young people and other professionals with regard to SEND matters.
DRAFT SUTTON CHARTER – many thanks to SPCF (Sutton Parent Carer Forum) for their time and thought in drafting this initial starting point. Feedback has already been gained from some stakeholder groups and we are now asking parent/carers groups for any feedback before consulting on a final version
