Supporting children, young people and families through transition
Tuesday 15 March 2022
Supporting all children and young people including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) through an educational transition process is extremely important for their future.
Northumberland County Council, NHS Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust have worked in partnership to create a new framework which supports the transition process from early years up to further education and preparation for adulthood.
Cath McEvoy-Carr, Northumberland County Council’s executive director for children’s services, said: “It is vital that our children and young people are supported through every stage of their educational journey so that they can thrive and grow.
“This new framework will help those who are working with children and young people with SEND feel supported to ensure they have the best opportunities in life.”
Following consultation with schools, parents, carers, children and young people, the council and its partners have created evidence-based whole school approaches to transitions, developed bespoke training and shared information with parents and carers.
