special educational needs

It is hard to see the value of ‘encouraging’ good practices, when poor practice does not result in any form of sanction

Nearly 40 years ago now, the Warnock Report into Special Educational Needs (SEN), concluded that with the right support around the child, all children should be able to access a mainstream education. Statements of SEN, School Action and School Action Plus followed. However, the lack of consistency in the way that learners with SEN were supported resulted in parents (and advocates) becoming increasingly vocal about their lack of confidence in the system, something which was highlighted in the Lamb Inquiry (2009) and led to SEND reforms in 2014.
