Governance and Oversight

Information about the committees, boards and panels that oversee our work.

Our work within the Suffolk SEND Partnership is governed by various different boards. This means that services report to these boards on a regular basis about what they are doing, and the boards ask questions or guide the direction of work in the future. 

Formal Governance from 2024

In addition to the oversight these boards provide, there are also a number of decision making panels you may hear about. These panels meet frequently to discuss individual children and decide how best to meet their needs. 

SEND Decision Making Panels

Previous Formal Committees and Boards

In all instances, these panels and boards must ensure that decisions are compliant with the relevant legislation and government guidance. You can find more information on these in the Related Links on this page.
