We published a Green Paper “Support and aspiration: A new approach to special educational needs and disability” on 9 March. This is out to consultation until 30 June. We will consider responses carefully before taking forward our reforms. We will shortly be inviting tenders for pathfinders to test proposals in the Green Paper. Within the general framework for special needs provision, it is for local authorities to determine the particular arrangements in their areas.
