That this House commends the incredible work of teachers, parents and carers in supporting and nurturing children with Special Education Needs and Disabilities; recognises that children with Special Education Needs and Disabilities deserve equal opportunity to develop and flourish in our education system; further recognises the way individuals with Special Education Needs and Disabilities enrich schools and society as a whole; condemns the requirement on schools to fund the at least first £6,000 of support for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities; recognises the injustice of making caring for children with Special Education Needs and Disabilities a financial burden on schools in the face of cuts to schools General Budgets; notes that this results in schools being unable to enrol or support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities; calls on the government to end this injustice and provide schools with the funding for the entirety of the support needed by children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
