Support and aspiration: A new approach to special educational needs and disability

Progress and next steps

Too many children and young people who are disabled or identified as having special educational needs (SEN) have poor outcomes in life and they and their families can struggle to get the support they need.

In our Green Paper, Support and aspiration: A new approach to special educational needs and disability we set out for consultation our plans for radically reforming the current system for identifying, assessing and supporting children and young people who are disabled or have SEN and their families.

This report responds to the consultation, sets out the progress we have made and our next steps in taking forward our plans, through legislation and in other ways. It is being published alongside a summary of the consultation responses.
