Letter from the Director of Children and Young People Services- Education Authority. Have your say!

2nd Nov 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We are currently reviewing how we provide information to parents, young people, schools, stakeholders and the wider public in relation to our Special Educational Needs (SEN) services and supports.

Our overall aim is to make it easier, clearer and more straightforward to access information about SEN services and support available, helping every child to be equipped and empowered to reach their potential.

As part of this process, we have launched an online questionnaire to provide the public and interested stakeholders the opportunity to have their say on how they would prefer to access information on SEN services.

The feedback will help review how we inform and guide parents/carers, teachers, children and young people, and other interested stakeholders, in relation to our SEN services in the future.

This will ultimately shape the development and publication of the EA Plan of its arrangements for Special Educational Provision in Northern Ireland next year.

The questionnaire can be accessed at the below link:

We would invite staff, parents/ carers and anyone else within the school community with an interest in EA’s SEN services to complete a questionnaire by Wednesday 10th November 2021.

We look forward to your feedback.

Kind regards,

Una Turbitt




Education Authority
