To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what steps he will set out in the forthcoming SEND Review to ensure a smooth and supportive transition from school to college for young people with Education Health and Care Plans.
1 November 2021
The department is determined to improve the outcomes for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) with a focus on preparing them for later life and adulthood, including their transition into further education.
The government is working at pace, and extensively with children and young people with SEND, parents and carers, as well as those working in local government, education, health and care services to ensure we get this right, and that proposals from our SEND Review lead to improvements in outcomes for children and young people.
The department is committed to concluding the Review and will publish proposals for full public consultation in the coming months.
