Children with Additional Needs Support Services Discussion Document

Support Services Discussion Feedback Form


Feedback should be completed by Friday 15th February 2019 and sent to: https://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/e-forms/education-support-services-discussion-document-feedback-questionnaire/


Over the last year we have carefully reviewed the EPS and ATS to ensure that we adopt principles that not only fit with the Education Hub strategic direction but also support Gloucestershire’s education settings to have access to the expert support they need to meet the needs of children with additional needs. 

The principles set out in the attached discussion document recognise the need for support services to be agile in future years as the approach to meeting the needs of children and young people with additional needs changes – along with the support schools need the most.
