Children with SEND at the frontline of funding crisis

Layla Moran

Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Education, Layla Moran has written an article outlining the need to address SEND funding. She argues that thousands of children with SEND are missing out on the education they deserve because of long waits for EHCP plans and that “the system as it stands is driving them to despair.” She stated the Liberal Democrats policy on the issue, outlining that a Liberal Democrat government would “provide thousands of pounds for every child with an EHCP” which would free up schools’ budgets to help children with moderate additional needs. She also said the 20-week deadline for EHCP plans needed to be enforced.
