Personalisation - Making it Personal

The 2014 SEND reforms are aimed at placing the children and young people at the center of processes and discussions, enabling them to make their own decisions and achieving their own goals.


Personalisation is:

  • Giving the child or young person support in a way that is accessible to them.
  • Ensuring the child or young person is at the centre and everyone involved work together to assist them in reaching their potential and aspirations.
  • The child or young person being equally and actively involved in managing their own lives

KIDS have made the Making it Personal 2 document (found at the bottom of this page), which provides guidance and information on personalisation and the changes brought about by the SEND reforms. 

Throughout the document, they illustrate the changes in practice that personalisation necessitates with examples and case studies identified in yellow, as well as pointing you to helpful tools.

All the guides can be accessed via the KIDS website.
