Why use the Policies Pack?
Firstly, you can adapt the policies to reflect the way you deliver send policy in schools. As a result, children and young people with VI gain access they need. Access to specialist resources / equipment that promote their independence in learning and living.
Secondly, these sample policies kick start the writing process. Saving time because it is easier to start with a frame than a blank page. You can add your own logo and details to customise the look to suit your organisation.
Importantly, you can guide your service staff to understand their role and responsibilities. Be clear about the boundaries of the services available. Moreover, ensuring you provide consistent services in line with local authority requirements.
Because you can reflect young people’s voices in local authority, you can model good working practice. Promote the work of the Service. Be specific to meeting the needs of children with vision impairment. For instance, distribute the pack to schools. Therefore helping to support their understanding of the send policy in schools.
