Government's Draft Clauses Document

Returning to segregated education by ‘removing the bias towards inclusion’ is the cornerstone of the Coalition Government’s Education policy for disabled learners.  The Coalition Government is planning the first major attack on disabled young peoples’ rights to inclusive education through the draft Children and Families Bill which we expect to be out in July. The proposed Bill will include the proposals outlined in the 'Support and Aspiration: A New Approach to Special Educational Needs and Disability' Green Paper and 'Progress and Next Steps' document. The proposals fit into five categories:

•        Early identification and assessment
•        Giving parents’ control
•        Learning and achieving
•        Preparing for adulthood
•        Services working together for families
