This questionnaire is for parents or carers of children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities in Cumbria who do not have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). If your child has an EHCP please do not progress with this survey. A separate postal survey is being carried out with parents/carers of children with an EHCP (this is because we have a central address database for these families)

We want to find out about the experiences you and your family have had – what’s worked, what hasn’t and how things could be improved. We worked with a group of parents and carers to develop the questionnaire. We will share the results of the survey with you via the Cumbria Parent Carer Forum and the SEND Local Offer website.

This survey is one of the ways we are responding to the recommendations from the Ofsted/Care Quality Commission inspection of SEND services in Cumbria in March. Your response will help make services better.

It should take you around 10-15 minutes to complete.

If you have any questions about the survey email kieran.barr@cumbria.gov.uk

If your child would like to tell us about their experiences themselves, we've also created a shorter survey just for them -> https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/BS3YGF9
