There has recently been an article addressing the lack of funding in mainstream schools.
Due to the change in education reform in 2014 there has been an increase in the number of EHCPs, which this article has stated, is taking money away from other pupils, because ‘their’ money is being used for SEN.
Yes budget cuts have affected schools.
However what it should highlight is that there is not enough funding for ANY pupils, let alone pupils with SEN.
This article will only increase pressure for SEN parents, making them feel even more isolated in a system which is a constant battle. Every child is entitled to an education.
It all comes down to the fact that there needs to be more funding and more support for teachers and parents.
In Devon alone they have lost £116million in funding between the years of 2015 and 2020, according to www.schoolcuts.org.uk.
The no filter mum addresses this with an Instagram post so well; Where is the outrage and the solidarity within the parenting community?
She says- ' Difference should not divide us' and we couldn't agree more!
We never want anyone here to feel isolated. We pride ourselves on giving you the tools to support your own journey in the SEN world.
I have attached the article below, it would be great to know your thoughts.
