The government’s ambition for all children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities is the same as for all other children and young people: a good start in life; that they achieve well in school and further education; are prepared for adulthood; and lead happy and fulfilled lives.

My right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education would have been delighted to attend an event but unfortunately could not due to competing priorities; he wishes every success to all those who participated in the range of events and activities that were held to mark it.
