The Vulnerable Students and SEND Group (VSSG) is set up to deliver a more strategic and coherent approach to supporting vulnerable students, and to ensure ongoing improvement in SEND working between the LA and Hounslow Schools.
The VSSG will work in close partnership with the LA to the benefit of all member schools, high needs funding spending and VSSG membership funding. Communication between the group and wider LA teams will be through their representatives.
There will be five meetings held annually, spread across the three terms. Smaller working groups may be identified to pick up on particular streams of development work.
The purpose of the meetings:
Develop, quality assure and review the service offers or commissioned work for member schools – eg Woodbridge Park KS4 partnership working, Gateway service offer, Alternative Provision bought on behalf of member schools such as Fresh Start and Trading Places
The working and outcomes of Fair Access Panel (FAP) placements and managed transfers
Consider feedback from member schools on their needs in order to investigate further potential service developments
Advisory group for SEND provision and improved communication strategies
Get Hounslow Reading – “Excellent session, Charlotte has extensive knowledge and understanding and I am really looking forward to being involved in the project.”
Secondary Subject Networks – “I’ve really appreciated sharing practice, discussing challenges with colleagues and having a sense of being part of a wider team for small departments.”
Primary Subject Leader Networks – “I really like the idea of subject specialists leading subject leader meetings.”
SEND Training – “There was plenty of time for discussion which was valuable. Strategies to help support, and ideas to consider, if children have been impacted by Domestic Abuse allowed me to think about the issues more than before."
Deep Dive Subject Leader Training – “Thank you for the very detailed and thorough subject leader checklist. It is an extremely useful and much necessary exercise. It's been an eye opener. Thank you”
Develop your A Level Teaching – “Really interesting to hear what other schools are thinking of doing by way of a recovery curriculum when we return. I think the discussions around wellbeing were very pertinent.”
The success of the Hounslow Education Partnership depends, in part, on good communication so please do get in touch to give us your feedback or about anything else you would like to discuss.
