(POET) Survey on EHCP support

We want to hear what you think about the additional support children and young people receive in Wiltshire for their special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

Published 17 April 2023

We'd like your views on the process of putting in place extra support in schools, and what it helps achieve for those with an EHCP.

An organisation called 'In Control' has devised questionnaires, with the help of children, young people, families and practitioners from across the country, for people to feedback about the process of getting and maintaining additional support that your child or young person needs and receives.

Complete the survey relevant to you, via the links below. If you are a parent/carer of more than one young person with SEND, please complete a separate questionnaire for each young person. Encouraging those in your care to complete a survey will help us understand their experience too. We are working to develop a range of ways to gather young people's view, as we appreciate a questionnaire is not always the best format.

You will not need to give any personal details and there will be no way of identifying individuals.

We will use the results of these surveys to monitor how we are doing and how we can make improvements in Wiltshire. The information will also be used in a report to help improve the way things are done nationally.

The surveys need to be completed during May this year.  An individual benchmarking report will be generated for our local authority, subject to enough surveys being submitted. We will share the results, and our plans as a result of the findings.

If you are interested in working with us to review the results and identify actions, please let us know via (opens new window) and we will contact you.
