Description

PLEASE BOOK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO ENSURE YOU GET TO HEAR THE TALKS THAT YOU WANT AND SO YOUR LUNCH CAN BE RESERVED. THANK YOU

Welcome to the Plymouth Parent Carer Voice, Parent Carer S.E.N.D Conference.

Following on from the success of last year, this year will follow a similar format by enabling parents and carers to choose the talks and workshops that are relevant to their family.

To ensure the conference remains accessible to as many parent / carers as possible, there is an initial fee to register, which can be refunded to you in full when you sign-in on the day, or alternatively you can choose to donate it to PPCV so we can continue to put on events. The ticket can also be refunded up to the day before the event if you are unable to attend.


This year's talks and workshops are:

SEN Support:

If your son or daughter has special educational needs but does not have an Education Health and Care plan, this workshop will answer important questions about what schools put into place to remove barriers to learning. Find out about how schools help pupils secure good outcomes through a graduated response and the 'assess, plan, do, review cycle'.

Age range: early years, primary, secondary and post-16.

EHC plans:

This workshop will explain what an education, health and care plan is, as well as consider who might need a plan and how a plan is applied for.

Age range: early years, primary, secondary and post-16.

Annual Reviews:

If your son or daughter has an education, health and care plan, what should you expect from an annual review? This workshop explores constructing good outcomes and person centred planning.

Age range: early years, primary, secondary and post-16.

Dyslexia:

This workshop is a chance to explore the new ‘Plymouth Dyslexia Guidance’ and consider what really good support in the classroom looks like.

New ASD Free School

This will be a short talk giving out the basic facts around the new free school.

The Department for Education have been running a Local Authority Special School free school bid process and we are delighted to have been successful at this first stage. Therefore we are working to identify providers who will be interested to work with us in opening new special school. The school will be established to meet the needs of those children in KS2 to KS4 whose complex needs are associated with Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) who are high functioning and/or extremely anxious and may have communication and interaction difficulties.

The workshop will provide parents and carers with information about this work and the next steps.



The drop-in area will enable 1:1 meetings with professionals, where parents and carers can speak to any of the following organisations and services (these are currently provisional and subject to change):

  • PIAS
  • Preparing for Adulthood
  • 0-25 Team
  • Careers South West
  • Short Breaks
  • Educational Psychologist

Further information and updates can be found on Plymouthpcv on Facebook.

There is a charge to register but on the day you can choose to have either a refund or donate the fee to PPCV.

A light lunch will be provided and the event is held within school hours.

Any difficulties with booking please message through Facebook or info@plymouthpcv.co.uk

We look forward to seeing you there.
