The government remains fully committed to a thorough and fundamental review of the special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) system.

The issues that the SEND system face are complex, but we are determined to deliver real, lasting improvements, taking into account the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.

I have met with many stakeholders across the SEND sector, to ensure that the review responds to the concerns of families and representative organisations.

The findings of the review will be published as soon as it is practicable to do so.
