The department is aware of the research carried out by Action for Children’s Parent Talk Service and the recommendations it sets out for the special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) system. This includes strengthening accountability measures to ensure that every child and young person has access to support that meets their needs.

The SEND and Alternative Provision Green Paper sets out our proposals for how we will improve the SEND system, so that it delivers improved outcomes, improved experiences and financial sustainability.

The green paper consultation closed on 22 July 2022. The department is currently reviewing the feedback received and using this, along with continued engagement with the system, to inform the next stage of delivering improvements for children, young people and their families. The department is committed to publishing a full response to the green paper in an Improvement Plan early in 2023.
