Thousands of new school spaces for SEND children

New special free schools will provide over 3,000 extra places for pupils with the most complex needs.

The 35 new free schools will provide children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) tailored support and specialist equipment.

Another two schools will be created solely for children who have been or are at risk of being excluded from mainstream education.

Education secretary, Gavin Williamson, said: ‘We need to be more ambitious for these children, which is why we are delivering on this Government’s commitment to deliver more school places for children with complex special educational needs.

’This will give these young people the opportunity they deserve for tailored support in a school that responds to their individual needs, making them confident learners and engaged students.'
