SEND Accelerated Progress Plan (APP)

This Accelerated Progress Plan (APP) has been developed by the SEND Partnership and approved by the Department for Education, following the judgement by Ofsted/CQC that sufficient progress had not been made against the weaknesses outlined by the recent re-inspection. These pages summarise the three areas of work in the APP and will be updated as progress is made on each.

  • Neurodiversity (ND) Workstream
  • Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) Workstream
  • Education Health Care Plan Quality

Other workstreams Supporting the Accelerated Progress Plan

In addition to the Accelerated Progress Plan there are 5 further workstreams supporting the improvement of the SEND experience in Shropshire:

  • SEND and Alternative Provision
  • Preparation for Adulthood
  • Local Offer and Communications
  • Emotional Health and Wellbeing Groups
  • Joint Commissioning

Shropshire Council and  NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin are committed to working in partnership with the SEND Community and PACC to ensure that co-production happens at all levels, so that decision making is informed and shaped by experience and knowledge of SEND families.
