Motion: Special Educational Needs and Disability – Investment and Transformation


That this Assembly commits to prioritising the needs of our most vulnerable children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND); notes that the current system for supporting children with SEND has failed to deliver appropriate and timely support for parents, pupils and schools; and calls on the Minister of Education to prioritise and invest in SEND transformation, to ensure that the End to End Review of Special Educational Needs produces an action plan that will be implemented urgently, and to make a commitment that all children with SEND in key transition years are notified of a school placement which meets their needs no later than children without special educational needs.
