We are starting to move most of our leaflets over into factsheets, looking to make these succinct and clear, and not using too much paper. We are also starting to produce web page ‘Guides’ on SEND subjects. These will give more detailed information for those who want to understand a bit more, including any national guidance and law related to a subject. The webpage guides can be found here.
Below are our most requested leaflets, translated into Bengali, French, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Tamil and Urdu. We have also recently added Factsheets (July 2022) translated into Arabic, Dari, Pashto, Russian & Ukrainian. These can be used by professionals when explaining SEND subjects to parent carers whose first language is not English.
Please note that the dates in brackets denote the time that the leaflet was translated. The leaflets that were translated in 2017 will still be helpful, but may refer to out of date terminology (e.g mention of statements being translated to EHC Plans). Whenever we commission the translation of leaflets, we find out what are the top 5 non-English speaking languages in West Sussex. This information is given to us by the Ethnic Minority and Traveller Achievement Service (EMTAS) at West Sussex County Council.
