Inquiry launched on Wednesday 18 April 2018. Oral evidence ongoing.
In 2014, the Government introduced wide-reaching changes to the SEND system, with the intention of offering simpler, improved and consistent help for children and young people with SEND. The Government claimed these changes would give families greater choice in decisions. The Committee’s new inquiry is intended to review the success of these reforms, how they have been implemented, and what impact they are having in meeting the challenges faced by children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
Evidence given by Tania Beard, Headteacher, St Martin's C of E Primary and Nursery School, Jon Boyes, Principal, Herne Bay High School, Penny Earl, Resource Provision Manager, Stoke Park Infant School, Sabrina Hobbs, Principal, Severndale Specialist Academy, Nicola Jones-Ford, SENCo, Fulham College Boys' School, Dr Cath Lowther, Educational Psychologist, Callum Wetherill, Pastoral Leader, Joseph Norton Academy
