SEND reforms: What YOU told us
You were asked if you had any views on the SEND reforms in your area so ‘Special Needs Jungle‘ could pass them on to the SEN Minister, Ed Timpson when SNJ went to the Department for Education last week.
And boy, did you tell them! Many shared similar concerns about how the SEN and Disability reforms are being rolled out in a number of LAs. ‘Special Needs Jungle‘ received one response that was positive. Family had been engaged, family had been informed, outcomes were agreed together and family were happy with the new EHC Plan.
However, the others all raised similar issues and to be frank, can be summed up by one comment we received: “The aspiration of the government is not the reality of the local authority. It has been diluted down considerably”
