Green paper on Special Educational Needs
Today the government announced a green paper to consult on a stronger national system for children with special educational needs and disabilities – ending the postcode lottery of uncertainty and accountability as we level up opportunities.
- Every child, regardless of their background, should be able to access the education they need and deserve.
- That is why we have announced a green paper to consult on a new national framework for children with SEND – including setting new national standards, simplifying the Education, Health and Care Plan, changing the culture and practice of mainstream education, and improving workforce training for staff in educational settings.
- These plans will end the postcode lottery of uncertainty and poor accountability that exists for too many families, boosting confidence in the system and improving both mainstream and specialist education as we continue to level up opportunities.
