On the show this week we will be discussing the green paper being pushed for in education and support of SEN children. After a long consultation period here are the final proposals so this is what will be going foward to the next stage. Please feel free to join in or post in our chat rooms you can call in free via Skype.

  • children’s special educational needs are picked up early and support is routinely put in place quickly
  • staff have the knowledge, understanding and skills to provide the right support for children and young people who have SEN or are disabled, wherever they are
  • parents know what they can reasonably expect their local school, local college, local authority and local services to provide, without them having to fight for it
  • children who would currently have a statement of SEN and young people over 16 who would have a learning difficulty assessment have an integrated assessment and a single Education, Health and Care Plan which is completed in a shorter time and without families having the stress of searching to get the support they need
  • parents have greater control over the services they and their family use, with:
    • every family with an Education, Health and Care plan having the right to a personal budget for their support
    • parents whose children have an education, health and care plan having the right to seek a place at any state-funded school, whether that is a special or mainstream school, a maintained school, academy or Free School.

Also some interviews and a look back at  fun of the Olympic torch when it came to Dame Hannahs at Seale Hayne.
