Annual SEND Survey

The Annual SEND survey 2020

Our aspiration is for every child and young person in Swindon to be safe from harm and abuse, be enabled to reach their full potential and develop skills for life, enjoy healthy lifestyles, and be a happy and active member of the community.

We want every child and young person with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) to make excellent progress through access to high quality support.  This means having sufficient and good quality services and provision that responds to local need and that the right help is available at the right time.
To achieve our aims we know that everyone needs to work together to plan services and this means listening to parents/ carers,  young people and the people delivering the services about what is working well and what could work better.

The purpose of this survey is to ensure we have a way of annually measuring opinions and experiences of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) services in Swindon from those receiving and delivering help, advice and support.

The survey is now closed. We will publish the results in early 2021.

The Annual SEND survey 2019

The first annual SEND survey ran from September to December 2019 and has given us a baseline from which to regularly measure satisfaction levels and the experience of those delivering and receiving services supporting children and young people with SEND in Swindon.

This report provides a summary of the information we obtained from the first annual survey, including a ‘You Said, We Did/We Will’ section which explains how we are using the feedback to get better at the things we need to improve and to get things right.

The presentation below provides a more detailed breakdown and analysis of the annual survey responses.
