Quick scan seems sensible.

IPSEA said they will try to get their response on tonight or by the morning - I Can't find it yet but will keep an eye out.

THE NAS don't say much - but it is here.
the concil for disabled children have given their response here page 12 onwards.

Link here

Hothead - did you (or anyone else) make a submission?

TheTimeTravellersWife Wed 10-Oct-12 10:14:02

Thanks for the link. Still haven't responded yet myself but intend to write it up today, deadline is noon tomorrow so not much time at all!

inappropriatelyemployed Wed 10-Oct-12 10:15:54

These documents help to focus the mind don't they?

TheTimeTravellersWife Wed 10-Oct-12 10:25:54

Yes, lots of glaring omissions. I am particularly concerned that the revised code of practice , which will provide most of the nuts and bolts of this, is not proposed to be scrutinised and debated in parliament.

alison222 Wed 10-Oct-12 10:27:35

I am drafting my response now using all the above documents as help and adding my won experience in which I think is important to do as it gives a depth to the argument that would otherwise not be there.

A maintained school is one paid for by the LA so presumably it does, yes.

I met Jane McConnell yesterday on a training course. She was a bit guarded about what they were going to say about the draft as she was still writing it.
I got the impression that she thought that there were glaring omissions in it ( like the right to apply for assessment). She had definitely seen the previous discussion about SOSSEN's response and commented on it.
TBH I am struggling a little as all these press releases seem very general.
Do you think that they have been more specific in their actual responses to the committee.

alison222 Wed 10-Oct-12 12:28:00

Just posting IPSEA document here too in case it gets missed and people don't see the other thread

TheTimeTravellersWife Wed 10-Oct-12 12:39:13

Still writing my response!
It is absolutely essential that the draft revised Code of Practice is made available for public scrutiny and debate in parliament, rather than just "rubber stamped" please see this link for reasons:

From 2000 - things don't change for disabled children!

The current draft Bill removes the requirement to specify and quantify provision, without which, an EHC Plan will not be worth the paper its written on!

I intend to copy my MP in on my response (when I finally finish it)

TheTimeTravellersWife Wed 10-Oct-12 16:11:12

Finished it!
Going to read it again before I send it.

Did we ever get a joint MN SN response together somewhere?

TheTimeTravellersWife Wed 10-Oct-12 19:14:28

Well that's it now, response emailed. Now going to send a summary of my response to my MP and have a nice cup of tea!
