Listening to Young People with SEN & Disabilities

As part of the implementation of the Children and Families Act (2014), Luton Borough Council (LBC) conducted a series of workshops to involve young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and hear their views. These workshops are part of wider work to promote pupil participation. We are at the early stages of developing this work and further updates will be published here.

Seven workshops were held in total in 2014. Six workshops were held in schools: three in mainstream secondary schools, one in a secondary school for pupils with severe learning difficulties, one in a behaviour provision for secondary school age pupils, and one in a mainstream primary school. These workshops followed a similar structure, although the approach developed over time, to consult young people on LBC’s approach to implementing the Children and Families Act. A description of the workshops is in the Appendix.
