SEND: Is there a postcode lottery for access to support, and can we quantify this?

2:30 pm - 3:10 pm

EPI Director of Social Mobility & Vulnerable Learners, Jo Hutchinson, will be presenting her initial findings from Pupil special educational needs and disabilities: identification, access and patterns of mental health support, this will include analysis on which groups of children are most likely to be identified in school as having SEND. The evidence will also reveal how the chances for children and young people who need to access SEND and mental health support vary across England as well as trends in these patterns over time. A panel discussion will follow the presentation.
