Young people with special needs 'being failed in 44% of areas in England'

Date: 1/11/2018
Summary: Children and young people with special needs are being failed in almost half of areas in England inspected under new rules, research by the Guardian has found.

Under a system of inspections introduced in 2016, the education watchdog Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission have so far visited 68 local areas to assess whether they meet the needs of those aged 0 to 25 with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

Inspectors said they had “serious concerns” in 30 cases (44% of those examined), requiring those areas to produce a written statement of action to detail how they would address “significant areas of weakness in the local area’s practice”.
