One minute guides

Annual Reviews

It is that time of year again when many of our children and young people are due their EHCP annual review. To help prepare for your annual review our one minute guide is a short summary reminder of what to expect and will help you prepare for the meeting.

If you are a professional working with a family (SENCO or support worker) please print this resource to share with the family before the review as not all our families will have access online to this Annual Review guide.

Check out the other one minute guides for families, all in an easy print format. And lets help share them with families we know.

Down Syndrome image

World Down Syndrome Day 2022

21 March is World Down Syndrome Day. The date is significant because a person with Down syndrome has three copies of the 21st chromosome and so the 21st day of the 3rd month is chosen to help raise awareness.

The Down Syndrome Training and Support Service can provide support, training and information to families and professionals across Bradford district. 

The Bradford Local Offer website is designed to support families, parents and carers with children and young people with SEND and can help you find other services and provisions that are available to you in the Bradford District and surrounding areas.
