An important forum for parents and carers of children with additional learning needs will be held later this month, Powys County Council has said.

The Powys ALN Parent Carer Forum will be taking place on Tuesday, February 25, at Maesyrhandir C.P. School in Newtown. The forum will start at 6.30pm and finish at 8pm.

The forum is an informal group where parents, carers and educational staff can voice opinions and work together to inform the council’s special educational needs (SEN)/additional learning needs (ALN) policies and practices.

Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Education, said: “We are committed to working in partnership with parents and carers to provide the best educational support for the children and young people in Powys.

“We are supporting the development of this independent parent carer forum to strengthen the voice of parents and carers while providing a platform for them to express their opinions and influence decisions.

“I would urge parents and carers to attend this important forum later this month.”

The council is also running a survey to establish whether parents and carers are aware of the Powys ALN Parent Carer Forum.

The council wants views and is urging parents/carers of a child or young person with special educational needs/additional learning needs to take part by clicking https://haveyoursay.powys.gov.uk/education/aln-parent-carer-forum-survey/.

The closing date of the survey is Sunday, February 23.
