DfE announces launch of major SEND review.

Education Secretary, Gavin Williamson, has launched a major review to address problems in the support available for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities. 

The DfE said the review will aim to improve services available to families who need support, as well as looking at how it can use “incentives and accountability” to make sure schools provide the best possible support for children with SEND.

It also said that it would look to "strike the right balance of state-funded provision across inclusive mainstream and specialist places as well as "ending the postcode lottery” children with SEND often face.

This comes on the back of the government's recent announcement that an extra £700m would be available for children with special educational needs and disabilities, a move that was cautiously welcomes by councils and charities.
