Sutton are currently undertaking a self evaluation review and we have arranged meetings to get feedback from parent/carers on what it is like to be a family with a disabled child and/or young person living in Sutton.  These meetings are chaired by John Hutton who is the independent Consultant leading on Sutton's self evaluation review. We have produced notes from each meeting which include the feedback from parent/carers via email.

 

The first meeting was held at Carshalton College on 20th September, 2016 and looked at the first inspection area; 'how effective is Sutton at identifying needs'
