‘Good Intentions, Good Enough?’ Report
In December 2016, the Department for Education asked Dame Christine Lenehan to lead an independent review of the experiences and outcomes of children and young people in residential special schools and colleges. Her report ‘Good Intentions, Good Enough?’ was published in November 2017 and the Government committed to respond more fully to the findings in 2018. Damian Hinds, Secretary of State for Education, wrote to Dame Christine with the Government’s formal response to her review. A copy of the report and this letter can be found here.
Guides are available for young people on how to resolve special education needs and disability (SEND) disagreements.
The guides can be found online at:
The guide for young people aged 16 to 25 is useful if you want to know who to talk to if you are unhappy with the help you are getting for your special educational needs or disability at school or college. This guide has been jointly developed by the Department for Education and Mott MacDonald, with help from young people with a learning disability and organisations that support them.
