SEND Multi-Agency Good Practice Event: Annual Reviews and Transitions
Our latest Bi-borough SEND Multi-Agency Good Practice Event took place on Wednesday 6th February in the at Kensington Town Hall and was attended by over 60 professionals from across a range of services and settings.
The focus for the event was ‘Annual Reviews and Transition’ and provided the opportunity for colleagues from across Education, Health and Social Care to discuss key issues, share good practice and work together to co-design and implement new ways of working.
Colleagues from Barlby Primary School, Burdett Coutts & Townshend Foundation CE Primary School, Kensington Aldridge Academy and West London College gave presentations on their experience of managing transition between phases, sharing good practice from their settings that we hope to build-on at settings across the Kensington and Chelsea, and Westminster.
Our Supported Interns, young people with SEND undertaking a yearlong employability course at Kensington and Chelsea Council, managed the registration and welcome to the event, and also facilitated and contributed to conversations at individual tables.
A common theme was the need to ensure that children and young people, and their families are at the centre of conversations about transition. It was therefore fitting that the morning was closed by the Chairs of our local parent carer forums, Sue Redmond (Full of Life in RBKC) and Hend Rahman (Make It Happen in WCC), who gave insightful speeches about their experience of transition processes and emphasised how a commitment to joint working between agencies will support our commitment to continued improvement.
