‘Ed Balls today announced measures to provide better support for pupils with special educational needs (SEN) and disabled children. “It is still the case that children with SEN are more than eight times as likely to be excluded, that some parents can find it hard to access the right support for their child and that pupils with SLD and PMLD need even more teachers with the right level of expertise, these measures will tackle these concerns.”’
Ed Balls, Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families, DCSF, press notice in response to Brian Lamb’s letter to the Secretary of State, 28 September 2009.
How will your school cope with the imminent shake up to the SEN system?
Ed Balls has announced Government plans to provide better support for pupils with special educational needs. The proposals precede the recommendations that will be put forward by Brian Lamb when the final report of the Lamb Inquiry is published. How will your school deal with new statutory guidance on behaviour and attendance, the introduction of new SEN assessment processes and a review into the supply of expert teachers supporting pupils with complex needs?
Attend the 7th annual SENCO Update conference to hear the very latest information on the Government’s national plans for SEN.
