How mainstream can work 

The Information Advice and Support Service in partnership with Northants Parent Forum Group and the Local Offer are looking to produce a toolkit for schools and parents focussing on SEN support in mainstream settings. We are looking for positive experiences of when it works and the benefits for the young people and their families. The aim will be a toolkit giving practical advice and support for parents and schools about SEN support in mainstream settings.

In order to produce the toolkit we will be hosting a number of parent workshops across the County to capture the views of parents about SEN support in mainstream schools. The two hour workshops will consist of a brief overview of the equalities act and the day in the life of a SENCo (to ensure that all parents have a clear understanding of what is meant by reasonable adjustments and what is appropriate for a school to do), before parents give us their views of what works and it would be better if.

We have currently booked the following events for parents.
