Inclusion Now 62


Welcome to the Inclusion Now SEND review supplement. This is an extra edition of the magazine, bringing you news about Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) government reforms.

In September 2019, the Government announced a review of the effectiveness of the current system of SEND support. As a result of the review, a Green Paper, ‘SEND review: right support, right place, right time’, consulting on reforms, was published in March 2022. This includes the Government’s plans to create new national SEND standards, to create consistency in provision across England. The paper stated the Government plans to bring forward legislation to place the standards on a statutory footing for the early years and education sectors, covering ages 0-25.

The consultation on the Green Paper is open until 22 July 2022, with a national SEND delivery plan expected later in the year.
