Consultation on new provision for children with special educational needs in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead
The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is proposing to open new facilities for children with special educational needs.
We’ve been consulting on options for new Resource Bases, attached to schools, for children with social communication difficulties and related behaviours. This consultation is now closed. The outcome of the consultation will be reported to the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead's Cabinet in late August, and we will put a link to the report on this page when it is available.
You can download the original consultation document here.
You can download the supplementary information about the new option here:
You can also download the draft good practice guide, which we have shared with schools to explain how Resource Bases work.
If you have any questions about these proposals, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposed Family Hub public consultation
We are carrying out a second stage public consultation to gather your views about our proposed Family Hub Service. The new proposed model would bring together services being run by children’s centres, youth centres, the parenting service, health visitors, school nurses and the family resilience service so that residents can get all the help they need, coordinated by the Family Hub Service.
The service would prioritise those children, young people and families most in need of help. We would do this by being flexible and responsive and delivering services where they are needed, rather than at a specific site. This means we could deliver Family Hub Services at a main hub or a sub-venue, in the community or in a family home.
This second stage of consultation builds on the first stage of the consultation that was undertaken between January and March 2020 which gathered views on the aims and principles of the proposed new model. The findings from the initial consultation were considered at Cabinet on 25 June 2020. Cabinet agreed to the second stage of the public consultation running for 9 weeks, from 23 July to 23 September 2020.
We have prepared some information to help you better understand the proposals and to ensure you are fully informed when giving your views. Before responding we would ask you to review:
