CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS
EDM #616
Tabled 10 December 2014
2014-15 Session
That this House notes the provisions of the Children and Families Act 2014 and in particular the legislation regarding children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities; further notes that there is wide variation between the interpretation and implementation of the reforms between local authorities, both in the funding arrangements for specialist education and in outcomes, and notes that this has resulted in young people with special educational needs and disabilities being denied appropriate independent advice and guidance, being pushed into inappropriate placements or excluded from education altogether; further notes that local authorities are both funders and commissioners and this situation can cause conflicting incentives; calls on the Government to publish stricter guidelines on how to adhere to this Act; calls for standardised delivery of local authorities' Local Offers; and further calls for regular analysis of the quality of the Local Offers and the independence of the guidance provided to young people.
