The agenda will include input from the Local Authority concerning a number of key issues, including emotional health and wellbeing, the SEND strategy and banding system, and the expectations around attendance, as well as the termly update from Clare Kershaw, Director of Education.

Following the mid-morning break, Emily Welton, ESSET Professional Officer, will join the meeting to discuss developing plans for outreach from Special Schools to support mainstream schools with the management of pupils with complex special needs.
