I started the day early at the East SILC at the John Jamieson site...

I was there for a meeting with the Specialist Inclusion Provision Group where we talked about the journey provision for children with special educational needs has made over the last few years. The SILCs are increasingly doing brilliant work in terms of providing an outstanding specialist offer, supporting partnership provision in resource and partnership schools and providing outreach training and support. We need to continue to look at the gaps in provision and ensure thqt provision is more consistent across the city. We need to look the behavioural continuum and work to fill the gaps in terms of rapid respite response and provision for children exhibiting the most complex mental, emotional and behavioural problems.

It is great to work with these colleagues who are making such a difference for our most special children. As always there is more to do.
