SEN Pathfinder Extension

December 19, 2013

On 10th December 2013, Edward Timpson announced an extension to the SEN Pathfinder programme to March 2015.  You can access information about this here.

The Pathfinder extension was announced in a speech the Minister gave to the LGA yesterday.  This also announced a £70m SEN reform grant.  Fairly early on in the speech, he gave the following message:  At a local level, I know that many areas are actively involving young people and working with parents through local parent partnership services and parent carer forums to develop policies and plans. It’s important that this happens in every local area and I urge you to take every possible opportunity to engage families.  You can find a full transcript of the speech here.
