Dear all,


Thank you for everyone who contributed the first Walsall Right for Children locality events. As promised see attached the locality map for your information. (See documents to download section at the bottom of this page)

We would like to welcome your school at the below two key events:



Walsall right 4 Children Locality Leadership in Action  - SEND

  • Transforming outcomes

About this Event

This event is for leaders of all organisations (including voluntary) involved in providing services for children and young people (0-25) with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and their families. We will explore the nature of leadership in the context of the Local Area SEND inspection judgement and our response in Walsall’s Written Statement of Action.

It will focus on what this will mean for your organisation and how we can work together to rapidly improve outcomes for all vulnerable children and young people.

All those in a leadership position either providing or commissioning services for children and young people with SEND (including the voluntary sector). For example, but not exclusively,

• Walsall Council

• Dudley and Walsall Clinical Commissioning Group

Walsall Right 4 Children - Our second locality partnership event

About this Event

Following on from the first locality events in June we would like to invite you to this follow up event. This event will bring leaders from different organisations across the locality together to learn more about what is on offer to help children, young people and families in the West locality and to reflect together whether the offer is meeting the needs of the children in this locality.

The event will start with lunch and a market place where you can network and gather lots of information of what different organisations have on offer for children and young people you are working with this includes school health, CAHMS, voluntary sector providers, Early help, Community Safety, Housing, etc.

The market place will be followed by presenting data on the needs and trends of children, young people and families in your locality – including data from referrals to the front door and Education Health and care plans and provide an opportunity to reflect together whether the offer available in your locality is sufficiently meeting the needs and trends. The event will be complete with identifying actions to address gaps, overlaps, etc.


Who should attend?

Aimed at Designated Safeguarding Leads, SENCO’s, Team Managers in Early help, Social Care, Youth Justice, Education, Health, Police, Housing Providers, Community Safety Voluntary Sector and Commissioning.
