SEND news - February 2020

Norfolk Council News Feed - Fri, 02/28/2020 - 14:18

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

February 2020

This month’s SEND newsletter has two themes - explaining about how we are re-shaping services to react to changing needs as well as celebrating the pleasing progress we are making with our transformation plan.

An annual stocktake has meant we are increasing the focus we give to key areas of our £120 million Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and Alternative Provision (AP) transformation programme.

This re-focusing will help us to address the continuing challenges we face with the ongoing high Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) referral rate while continuing to progress towards our long-stated aims of building new specialist schools and bases at mainstream schools.

Our plans for SEND are ambitious and as with all projects of this kind some elements are going very well whilst we need to improve our performance on others. I’m pleased to see we are taking an agile approach in dealing with these challenges.

It’s fantastic to see the progress in terms of planning applications and construction work bringing us closer to realising hundreds of new learning places around the county.

I hope you enjoy reading the updates we have for you this month.

Cllr John Fisher
Cabinet Member for Children’s Services
Norfolk County Council

Forthcoming SEND Local area inspection

Parents, carers and young people are being asked for their views about provision for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) in Norfolk.

Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) is jointly inspecting all agencies and organisations involved in SEND provision in Norfolk from Monday 2 to Friday 6 March.

Families can get involved by completing an online 30-minute webinar at https://bit.ly/2utTquV by 6 March or emailing their views to lasend.support@ofsted.gov.uk.

Further information about the inspection can be found here. Useful DfE guidance for parents and carers on SEND Inspections can be found here.

New streams of work

Norfolk County Council’s £120 million five-year programme to transform special education needs and disabilities (SEND) provision in the county has been re-shaped following an annual stocktake conducted by the Learning and Inclusion team which oversees it.

The various key pieces of work were previously divided into workstreams numbered from one to five. The new approach, which aims to bring rapid focus to key issues, means there is now a Workstream A which deals with mainstream inclusion and a Workstream B, which deals with infrastructure and includes the building and expansion work for the three proposed new special schools, the new Specialist Referral Bases (SRBs) and the expansions of existing complex needs schools.

Added to this are two rapid action teams. Team 1 is focusing on Education, Health and Care Plans or EHCPs (more information below)  and team 2 is focusing on setting up a virtual school for Alternative Provision (AP).

Great progress at Sheringham Woodfields

Lovely photographs were published on social media this month marking the great progress in building a new £1.4 million state-of-the art therapeutic centre at Sheringham Woodfields School for children with complex needs.

Draper and Nichols Ltd are the main contractors building the centre, which has been part funded by Norfolk County Council as part of our £120 million SEND transformation programme, with other funds secured directly by the school.

The new centre will feature a flexible, fully-equipped sensory integration studio and a main hall kitted out with an Olympic-sized, sunken trampoline and other specialist equipment. It will also include a range of smaller rooms which will be used for one-to-one therapy sessions.

The school has 121 pupils on roll aged from three to 19 (increasing to 135 by the time the therapy centre is open). The centre is due to open in September 2020.

Renewed focus on EHCP

A new rapid action team has been formed headed up by newly-appointed head of service for high needs and SEND, Nicki Rider.

This team was formed following the annual stocktake of the SEND transformation programme which prioritised improving our EHCP performance.

The average monthly rate of EHCP referrals has nearly doubled in recent months in comparison to the previous year. This means that, despite us increasing our staffing levels, we have still been unable to achieve the service improvements we need.

Nicki Rider has a wealth of SEND experience and will be known to many. Over the last year she has been focussed on her involvement within the transformation programme for SEND but she has now accepted a new post which will see her leading the team to transform performance for Education, Health and Care assessments.

All EHCP teams, educational psychologists, provision and placements, panels, the Local Offer and SEND sufficiency will be within her remit.

New specialist school in Great Yarmouth gets the go-ahead

Planning permission was granted on Friday 21 February for the construction of a new specialist school on the former Alderman Swindell site at Great Yarmouth.

The new school will provide specialist school places for up to 94 boys aged five to 16 with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs. It will include residential provision which will enable around 30 to 40 children and staff to live on site during the school week.

It will be run by Boudica Schools’ Trust (formerly Rightforsuccess Trust) which manages 10 academies including one specialist school, Eaton Hall Specialist Academy in Norwich, which also caters for boys with SEMH and is ranked outstanding by Ofsted.

Demolition has now started on site but the existing historic frontage of the school will be retained.

The school is expected to be complete and start accepting pupils on a phased timetable from Autumn 2021, reaching full capacity in the following years. You can read more here.

Plans for Fakenham specialist school progressing

Formal planning permission has now been lodged for a new school for children with autism at Fakenham.

This follows a successful local pre-planning exhibition held last month which was attended by dozens of people from the town who took the opportunity to discuss the scheme in greater detail with officers from Norfolk County Council’s capital projects team. You can still watch a video fly-through of the proposed site here.

Following an earlier consultation, the county council is due to make a submission very shortly to the DfE on the re-use of the former playing field.

A decision on who will run the school is expected early Spring this year. If approved, the new school could start accepting pupils from early 2022.

SEND support project success

We are building on the success of our core consultation initiative with a new inclusion model we are piloting.

Agreement has been reached with a group of headteachers in South Norfolk to build on the feedback from the core consultation initiative together with previously successful ways of working to pilot a new approach focused on SEN support to meet needs early. More detail will be forthcoming on this as we progress.

Our core consultation initiative is continuing. A total of 202 schools are taking part in two phases. The 113 in the first phase have all received a visit. We have 89 schools in the second phase, 18 of which have been visited with dates arranged for the remaining 71.

The free initiative has seen Norfolk County Council deliver specialist SEND support advice targeted to an individual school’s particular SEND support needs.

There is rigorous criteria before this programme is offered to offenders including the wishes of their victim. We are looking forward to this project being rolled out across Norfolk in due course.

CLICK HERE to read the full article Escape the Trap - Facilitator Training - Sudbury

There will be an Escape the Trap facilitator training held in Sudbury Suffolk on 1st, 2nd, 3rd July 2020.

This is an incredible 3 day course which enables practitioners to facilitate healthy relationship programmes for young people. The DACC's are all trained facilitators and couldn't recommend the course enough (run by Cathy Press, who was a guest speaker at our conference in 2018).

"Escape the TRAP has been developed in acknowledgement of the rising number of young people  - particularly girls - aged 13-16 years, identified as being vulnerable to teenage relationship abuse, grooming and CSE, but the learning could be applied to young males who find themselves victim/vulnerable to the same experiences".

National News New Year Message from Claire Throssell

For those Champions who attended our Annual Conference last year, Claire needs no introduction. She was one our guest speakers and her words touched each and every one us there.

Claire's precious boys were murdered by their Father. Since the horror and trauma of that day, Claire vowed to have her boys' voices heard and has been campaigning ever since. Alongside Women's Aid, Claire instigated the campaign 'Child First' and took it all the way to 10 Downing Street. Some of the changes in the new DA Bill are due to Claire's campaigning. Claire gave a video message for the New Year about the need for the Bill to implemented as soon as possible.

CLICK HERE to watch the video of Claire Report Suggests Judges in Family Court do not know what Rape means

There is a call for further investigation following a report suggesting some Judges within Family Courts do not fully understand what rape means. What happens in Family courts is usually private but if a case is being appealed, the case can be made public. This is how a recent case has been able to be reported. A judge suggests the victim did not 'take physical steps' to stop the rape so therefore 'this does not constitute rape'.

The report argues that the 'veil of secrecy' which surrounds family courts could be argued to hide 'vintage attitudes' to rape and DA. A more senior Judge in this case ruled in favour of the victim who won her appeal.

The report identifies the need for a standardised approach from the judicial system in the UK so victims are not re-victimised

Harvey Weinstein, 67, has been found guilty of third degree rape and first degree criminal sexual act. He was cleared of predatory sexual assault, which was the most serious count, but still faces up to 25 years in prison. More than 80 women have accused him of sexual assault, and he is still facing charges of assaulting two women in 2013. Women such as Uma Thurman, Gwyneth Paltrow and Salma Hayek have come forward, and inspired many women to speak out as victims in the #metoo movement. Weinstein will will sentenced on 11th March 2020.

Pre-teens coerced into sex acts on webcam

The Internet Watch Foundation stated that pre-teen sexual selfies are increasing at an alarming rate. 80% of sexual selfies found, were of children aged 11-13. Many of these children are tricked, or coerced into taking these images and performing other sexual acts in front of the camera. IWF are encouraging adults to report these images if they come across them on websites. The link to report is in the article below. IWF report that this is becoming a national crisis, and many of these girls are vulnerable, believe themselves to be in a relationship with their perpetrator and trust them. 

CLICK HERE to read the full article New Stalking Protection Orders

We welcome the new Stalking Protection Orders (SPO) which police are able to apply to Magistrates to use. SPO can be used by the police at the earliest opportunity to protect the victim. The orders can be given whilst investigation is taking place. Orders can be in place for up to 2 years and if breached, the perpetrator could face up to 5 years in custody.

Reports have suggested victims will report to the police after they have suffered 100 behaviours from their perpetrator.

We know DA stalkers are the most dangerous. If the perpetrator makes a threat to kill, 50% of these stalkers will go on to see that threat through. Already this year, 4 women have been reported to have been murdered by their partner or ex partner.

We need to remember the difference between stalking and harassment:

Stalking is; 'A pattern of unwanted, fixated and obsessive behaviour which is intrusive and causes fear of violence or serious harm, alarm or distress' (Paladin)

The Father of Alice Ruggles (murdered after being stalked by ex boyfriend) has stated the orders 'could have made a critical difference' in Alice's case

Yahya Jammeh has banned FGM stating it is not required in Islam

This is such a positive step in the right direction in stopping the practice. There are absolutely no health benefits for FGM but holds many risks including death and disease.

This ban will go some way to start the shifting cultural norms.

We have contributed to the development of a new FREE resource for schools. The resource supports schools to deliver high-quality, effective relationship education, and helps the school community recognise and respond to teenage relationship abuse. The product is funded by Norfolk county community safety partnership.  We piloted this at Hellesdon High School with a class of year 8’s & 9’s on 14th Jan with really positive feedback from both the children and the teachers.#seethechains

A reminder of a great, grass-roots grown service based in Norwich and open to all women across Norfolk. Orto Stella was created by a woman called Christina Norton. Christina is a survivor and during her recovery, the support she needed wasn't there. So, she created it herself! Orto Stella offers confidence building workshops, support groups for survivors, work ready workshops and work placements. This is all offered for FREE and is based in Norwich.

Update on our Christen Williams

As most of you are aware, our colleague Christen Williams who covers North, East and Broadland, had a double mastectomy in December. Christen  found out she had the BRCA mutation which meant her chances of getting breast cancer was significantly high. So many people have asked how Christen is after her op ...... she is doing amazing!! She's slowly building her hours back up and it's great to have her back!

Christen has made a vlog to document the journey she has been on: Search for her on Instagram and You Tube @BRCAchatter

Marriott's Way Heritage Trail January & February Newsletter

Norfolk Council News Feed - Fri, 02/28/2020 - 10:00
Marriott's Way Heritage Trail Newsletter Welcome to 2020 What a wet and windy few weeks we've had. Nonetheless, the wintry weather hasn't hampered the project's progress and plenty has been happening on and off Marriott's Way. At this time of year you'll really notice the  beginning of seasonal changes along Marriott's Way. The blackthorn is in bloom, and the heart shaped leaves of arum are emerging. The cheerful heads of primrose, snowdrop and narcissi now visible too.  What signs of Spring can you spot along the route? Half Term Hedge Planting

A great day was had at Whitwell & Reepham Friday 21 February, when families and volunteers planted 108 hedge plants, including native favorites like snowberry, wild rose and holly, as well as fruit trees.

Local residents and volunteers from Mid Norfolk TCV wrapped up warm to attend the event at the Station's Platform Two. The hedging was planted to promote greater biodiversity at the location and replace the trees that had been on the bankside running adjacent to the historic M&GN Railway station, which were lost owing to unstable roots and Ash dieback disease.

Marriott's Way maintenance works.  During February and beyond Broadland District Council carried has been working alongside Norfolk County Council to deliver a series of access improvement and enhancement works to the Marriott’s Way. This includes tree safety management work, biodiversity enhancement schemes, and redressing the surface of the route to make it more accessible for cyclists and pedestrians.

The first stage of these enhancement works involved managing the trees along the stretch of the route from Taverham Road to Pendlesham Rise. The tree work along the route was being carried out for the following reasons:

  • To improve the diversity and health of the tree stock through coppicing, thinning and replanting.

  • To improve light and air levels to the surface of the Marriott’s Way which is often wet and muddy in places.

  • To remove Ash trees with over 50% crown loss due to Chalara Ash dieback disease.

  • To carry out pro-active Health & Safety works.

  • To prepare the route for re-surfacing by removing overhanging and encroaching trees.

Where track closures are necessary re-routed maps will be displayed to identify suitable and safe diversions for Marriott's Way users. 

We thank you all for your understanding and patience during these essential access improvement and enhancement works along our route.

Bolt from the past.

Marriott's Way is littered with evidence of its railway heritage. Here's a 'chair screw' found in the leaf litter near Attlebridge. These substantial screws were screwed into a hole bored in the railway sleepers to keep the rails and base plates in place.
