Parents in Mind

Applies to-All schools

please see attached leaflet

My name is Catherine Briars – I manage Parents in Mind, a MH peer support service for mums across Halton who are pregnant and/or have a child under two years, and are in need some low intensity support with their mental/emotional health and wellbeing. We operate from Children’s Centres across Halton – it would be brilliant to try and get the word out to schools that our service exists so that we can support more local parents who would benefit from a weekly opportunity to talk and feel supported by other Halton mums, who themselves have lived experience of difficulties at this time in their own lives, and are passionate about making a difference.

SEND Review

Applies to-All schools

“Peopletoo” have been commissioned by the Local Authority to undertake an independent review of SEND in the Borough.

Through this review we want to achieve the following for young people with SEND aged 0-25 years:

  • Detailed understanding of our SEND population
  • Detailed understanding of our special school population and pupil profile
  • Detailed understanding of our future needs and profiles of specialist provision to meet that need
  • Detailed understanding of  future post 16 needs and opportunities to improve provision and capacity in our local communities
  • Detailed understanding of the views of all stakeholders in terms of existing strengths and opportunities to improve high needs provision
  • Detailed understanding of perceived barriers to inclusion in mainstream schools and colleges with recommendations for potential solutions
  • Detailed understanding of the total level of  resources available and how to effectively target these to meet need
  • Detailed understanding of potential challenges, sensitivities and conflicts of interest, together with potential solutions to these.

They will be attending a number of key strategic groups and meeting some schools, and other partners as well as  parent and carer representatives.

They have been tasked with completing the final report by the end of September 2018.
