Tulip Siddiq responds to Education Policy Institute’s report ‘Identifying children with special educational needs and disabilities’

Tulip Siddiq MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Children and Early Years, responding to the Education Policy Institute’s report ‘Identifying children with special educational needs and disabilities’, said:

“The Government is clearly failing children with special educational needs and disabilities. Families are facing a postcode lottery, with inconsistent support that is determined by geography and resources rather than the needs of children.”

“This is unacceptable. Children have been neglected by this Government and action is urgently needed to ensure that every child with SEND receives the individual support they need to succeed at school.”
