The department welcomes the Children's Commissioner's report, a response to the department’s consultation, which provided a range of recommendations for the special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) system, including improving the educational health care (EHC) plan process, and support that is available for alternative provision (AP) providers. The SEND and AP green paper set out the department’s proposals for how the SEND system can be improved, so that it delivers better outcomes, experiences and financial sustainability. The department will publish a SEND and AP Improvement Plan that will set out the consultation feedback and next steps in due course.
