Open consultation

The government is now seeking views on their green paper about the changes they want to make to the special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and alternative provision (AP) system in England.

The consultation is being held on another website.

The consultation closes at 11:45pm on 22 July 2022

Consultation description

The government is committed to improving outcomes for children and young people with SEND and those in alternative provision.

To achieve this ambition they want to work with and hear from:

  • children and young people
  • parents and carers
  • those who advocate and work with the SEND sector
  • local and national system leaders

They encourage you to consider the proposals set out in this green paper and respond to their consultation.

A separate summary covering the SEND and AP green paper and responding to the consultation is also available.

The DfE will also be holding separate consultation events across the country. You can read about that here.
