On behalf of Shortland-Palmer Consultancy, we would like to express our sincere thanks for your school's involvement in the project regarding the 'Effective and Meaningful Participation of Children and Young People with SEND in Central Bedfordshire'.
Please would you pass on a huge thank you to all the young people at Weatherfield Academy for their enthusiasm and willingness to get involved both with activities in school and at our recent launch at the Forest Centre at half-term. Your young people made a positive, lasting impression on our representatives from Central Bedfordshire Council and Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group. They should feel proud of how they participated and the extremely valuable contribution which they have made to such an important piece of work.
We hope that, in time, young people will participate in co-production of services as a matter of course. The project is now moving into an implementation phase, this will include a presentation to the Council at the beginning of December and we hope to involve some young people in this presentation. We will also look to involve young people in contributing to the design of a young people's Local Offer and willbe contacting you in this regard.
We also wish to thank the staff at the school for their commitment to this project, they have helped to enable young people to participate and certainly the project would not have progressed as it has without their help, thank you.
Finally, we will provide the school with a copy of our report including strategy and recommendations once it is finalised and we will contact you again regarding this project to build on the good work which has already been achieved.
Many thanks to you all.
