Overview

West Sussex County Council are launching our new SEND and Inclusion Strategy this Autumn. We need an image / picture / graphic to use on documents and websites for the Strategy, and we’d like it to be designed by you, the children and young people of West Sussex. The competition is open to all children and young people aged 4 to 25 years. The winner will receive a £50 gift voucher. Please see terms and conditions below.

Why We Are Consulting

The SEND and Inclusion Strategy is all about how we plan to support children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities so that they

•        Have the chance to learn all they can

•        Feel included and be a full member of their local community

•        Are healthy and safe

•        Ready for life as an adult.

You can read the full Easy Read plan by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page.  

Children, young people and their families are at the centre of these plans and we would like you to design a picture to represent this important work in West Sussex. 

Design Tips

•        The design needs to be clear, simple – we will need to use the image at different sizes

•        The image should celebrate our SEND and Inclusion plans to make all children and young people feel included and part of their school, college or community

•        You can use colour

•        Designs can be digital or hand drawn.
