Part of the commitment to make Northamptonshire a person-centred authority is to obtain the opinion of children and young people with special educational needs about their lives. Viewpoint, as an approved international provider and designer, has been commissioned by the local authority to create an
online survey for children and young people who have a current Education Health and Care plan.
The survey is to be completed by each child or young person when their annual review is due, as to inform the SEN Officer who will review the EHC plan. The survey has been developed with the help of local young people with SEND and local school staff. Details for students unique and secure logon and password are distributed to the school or education setting by the EHC admin team.
The school will be able to view the individual's results and a report about their school. Schools can be provided with their own 'manager access'.
There are two styles, one for those who struggle with reading and comprehension and one for students who don't. Both surveys can be listened to, as well as read.
Young people should be able to complete the survey independently, but will need encouragement to participate.
