SEND plan extract

The foundation for the new nationally consistent SEND and alternative provision system will be new evidenced-based National Standards.    Standards will improve early identification of needs and intervention, and set out clear expectations for the types of support that should be ordinarily available in mainstream settings.    This will give families and providers clarity, consistency and confidence in the support that is ordinarily available, in order to be responsive to children’s needs.

With these expectations, and improved mainstream provision, more children and young people will receive the support they need through ordinarily available provision in their local setting.    Fewer will therefore need to access support through an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).


From Executive summary, paragraph 4, Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and Alternative provision improvement plan, Right support, right place, right time.    March 2023.    Published under the terms of the Open Government Licence v3.0
