Views sought in education review in Northamptonshire

Proposals to keep pupils with moderate learning difficulties in mainstream schools are being considered in a review of services in Northamptonshire.

The county council is asking for the views of parents of children with special educational needs about possible changes.

Another plan being looked at is whether to provide a single point of contact for parents during assessments.

Further information will be available on the council's website.

The recommendations have come from the first stage of a review, and now parents are being asked for their views for the second stage.

Two consultation events in Kettering and Northampton have been planned for September and parents and other interested parties are invited to come along.

Andrew Grant, cabinet member for children and young people, said: "Northamptonshire is committed to providing the best possible quality of education for all its children and young people.

"We want to welcome as many people as possible to this meeting, to offer parents the chance to have an input into how the future of special education in the county will be run."

The responses to the review will be brought together to form part of the final proposal for a cabinet decision which will is due to be made in November.
