The key implication of these findings is that any further changes to the system should focus not on tightening the processes of prescribing entitlement to services but, rather, on: improving the quality of assessment ensuring that where additional support is provided, it is effective improving teaching and pastoral support early on so that additional provision is not needed later developing specialist provision and services strategically so that they are available to maintained and independent schools, academies and colleges simplifying legislation so that the system is clearer for parents, schools and other education and training providers ensuring that schools do not identify pupils as having special educational needs when they simply need better teaching ensuring that accountability for those providing services focuses on the outcomes for the children and young people concerned.

The Academies Act establishes a whole new structure to our education system – what are the implications for children and young people with SEND? How will the Education, Health and Care Plan offer more support to children and their families? What are the implications for schools in regard to one single SEN stage to replace school action and school action plus? The Achievement for All pilot in 10 local authorities has been incredibly successful – is it possible to reduce the current 21% of children identified with SEND by 10% across the country if AfA is rolled out in every school?
