The Government has published both a White Paper on Education (definitive plans) and a Green Paper (a statement of intention) on SEND reforms this week. A copy of the Green Paper can be found

and the Education White Paper can be found

These are very significant statements and ones which will alter the provision for all school age children and especially those with SEND.  There is a lot to absorb.

FACT Bucks is a member of the National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF) which liaises directly with the Government on these national issues on behalf of all parent carer forums.

They have produced a collective initial response to the Green Paper

and the White Paper Initial NNPCF response to the Schools White Paper – National Network of Parent Carer Forums C.I.C

FACT Bucks will be contributing to the debate on both through the NNPCF as they have the direct influence.  Any comments you offer to us will be fed through to them.  Parents and Carers can also make responses direct to the Government as set out in the relevant paper.
