Special Educational Needs: Reforming provision in English schools
A better approach to SEN should be seen as a vital concern in reforming the education system. SEN fits within and plays a part in many educational debates, including the role of academies and Free Schools; the pupil premium; and how to improve accountability.
This report considers potential reforms to the approach to SEN in England in the context of broader educational issues and policy changes. It also considers specific problems such as what SEN is, and how the government should approach inclusion before making further recommendations to improve assessment, funding and provision.
