Missing special needs support a "national scandal"

In today's news:

The thousands of children missing out on key support for diagnosed special educational needs in England is a "national scandal", Ofsted has said.

Chief inspector of England's schools, Amanda Spielman, reveals 2,060 children with official education, health and care plans (EHCs) setting out their needs receive no support at all.
She also raises the issue of children disappearing from education.
Some parents said a child is only assessed when they are excluded.

Ms Spielman says: "Too often, children who have been assessed still do not receive the services they need."
She uses her annual report to expose what she describes as a "bleak picture" of too many children "failed by the education system".
