A big thank-you to all of the LA Sensory Support Services who have submitted data for the seventh annual NatSIP Outcomes Benchmarking excercise.
As of today (31 March 2017) 101 LAs are represented in the submitted data. This means that the target of 100+ LAs included within the DfE contract has once again been achieved. The final number of LAs is likely to rise even higher with the online submission system remaining open until Friday 7 April 2017
The early achievement of this target, in comparison with the usual beginning of June in previous years, will enable the reporting to take place well in advance of the end of June deadline, which will hopefully be more helpful to services in terms of development planning.
