SEND green paper
On 29 March 2022, the Government published the SEND Review: Right support, right place, right time, a consultation on the special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and alternative provision system in England. The consultation set out proposed reforms to the SEND and alternative provision (AP) system that seek to address three key challenges:
- poor outcomes for children and young people with SEN or in alternative provision
- navigating the SEND system and alternative provision is not a positive experience for children, young people, and their families
- despite unprecedented investment, the system is not delivering value for money for children, young people and families.
Our governance groups considered the impacts of the green paper and provided a consultation response on behalf of Local Area SEND in Derby.
