In June 2018, NGA gave written evidence to the Education Select Committee's inquiry into the education of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities.
Key points from NGA's evidence:
- NGA welcomes greater involvement from the child/young person and their parents when developing a EHC plan;
- The delays experienced by some children/young people need to be addressed. Children/young people and their families should not have to deal with the stress and uncertainty this can cause;
- Although NGA welcomes the SEND reforms, their benefit can only be properly realised if sufficient funding is made available.
