JSHAO HOUSING BRIEF - CATTERICK


NORTH YORKSHIRE POLICE - COMMUNITY MESSAGING


NYCC - SEND Provision

During September and October we have been holding events with parents and carers to provide an opportunity to talk about the support that is needed for children and young people around SEND provision.  This input is helping to inform the strategic plan for the county.
To build on this feedback we have planned some further events for parents and carers during November 2017.  These events will provide an update on progress, which has been informed by the feedback from across the county.  They will also include information about proposals being suggested for the Strategic Plan. 
This is a further opportunity for parents and carers to be involved and provide feedback before formal consultation begins in early 2018.  
Parents and carers don’t need to register for the events below, please just join us at:

AFF SURVEY

Service families encouraged to share attitudes towards higher education

Recent academic research by the University of Winchester has indicated that four out of ten service children who have the ability to progress into higher education are unlikely to do so.

Leading military charity, the Army Families Federation (AFF) is working with the university to find out more from Service families on this issue.

Take AFF's survey
Families with a child aged 11-18 years are encouraged to take part in AFF's latest survey, which seeks to find out what type of school their child currently attends, and what plans the family has for their child's education following school.

AFF Policy & Research Director Louise Simpson said: "We need families to help us to build a better understanding of why further and higher education may not appeal. If families aspire for their child to attend further/higher education, tell us why, and similarly, if not, we'd love to know their reasons."

Parental influence
AFF is also keen to hear about the influence parents have had on their child's education, including their link to the Services, and their own educational choices too.

Share your views
To take AFF's short survey and share your views and experiences, go to https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/3GXGL99.

Survey closes 13 November.
