The Government’s SEND and alternative provision green paper (published Tuesday 29 March), sets out its vision for a single, national SEND and alternative provision (AP) system that will introduce new standards in the quality of support given to children across education, health and care.
With the aims of:
- creating a single, national SEND and alternative provision system
- providing excellent provision from early years to adulthood
- introducing a reformed and integrated role for alternative provision, for children who can’t attend mainstream school, whether for behavioural, health or other needs
- reforming system roles, funding and accountability
