If you are a parent or carer of a child who has an Education,
Health and Care Plan (EHCP), or a child or young person who has an
EHCP, then we would like to know how the process was for you.
Watch here for an
introduction to the POET
The Personal Outcomes Evaluation Tool (POET) has been designed
to capture the views of children and young people, parents/carers
and practitioners about the experience of obtaining an Education
Health and Care (EHC) plan. The Children and Families Act aims to
transform the SEND system to better meet the needs of children,
young people and their families. The national and local data
generated by using the POET provides a way to evidence this change
and influence implementation locally and nationally.
Over 70 Children's Services have volunteered to participate in
the POET so If you are a parent or carer of a child who has an EHC
Plan, or a child or young person who has an EHCP, then we would
like to have your feedback on how the process was for you.
