NAO Report on Support for Pupils with SEND

The National Audit Office (NAO) has published a report looking at support for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in England. They conclude that while some children with SEND are receiving high-quality support, many others are not getting the help they should as local authorities come under growing financial pressure as the demand for support rises.

The government has announced a review into support for children with special educational needs. The review aims to improve the services available to families who need support and to equip staff in schools and colleges to respond to their needs.
