Support and Aspiration - SEN Green Paper

Today sees the publication of the new green paper on special educational needs (SEN), which sets out the government's plans for reform to the support available within schools. The proposals are wide-ranging, covering plans to replace SEN statements with education and health care plans, and assessing children in a single get-together rather than having them attend a series of meetings.

You can read more about the plans from this BBC article, and this piece from the Guardian.
