The Select Committees findings are damning and show what we have long suspected and known, that the system with the right intentions to support children and young people with SEND needs is failing the very people it is meant to help.

“This generation is being let down—the reforms have not done enough to join the dots, to bring people together and to create opportunities for all young people to thrive in adulthood.”

The committee has identified a concoction of a lack of oversight, leadership, joint working, funding and an absence of accountability, by the Department of Education (DfE), which has inevitably led to systemic failures.

We fully support the committee’s recommendation that the Government “should avoid the temptation to address the problems within the system by weakening or watering down duties or making fundamental changes to the law.”
