The SEND Review was launched in September 2019 to review the SEND reforms introduced in 2014. It was delayed by the pandemic, but is finally expected to be published by the end of this month.
We are excited to share the news that Lorraine Petersen OBE is joining us live on Tuesday 3 May to present her ‘Response to the SEND Review’. Lorraine will outline the content of the review and the implications for schools, young people and their families.
Don’t worry if you can’t make the live presentation, you’ll be able to watch the recording afterwards.
Lorraine’s session will cover
- The history behind the SEND Review
- The SEND Review – what was announced?
- SEN support
- The role of the SENCO
- What it means for schools
- Answers to your questions
Watch Lorraine Petersen speaking about her hopes for The SEND Review
**The Government published the green paper
SEND Review: Right support, right place, right time
on 29 March 2022.**
It sets out proposals for a SEND and alternative provision system that offers children and young people the opportunity to thrive, with access to the right support, in the right place, and at the right time, so they can fulfil their potential and lead happy, healthy and productive adult lives. The DfE is now undertaking a public consultation on the green paper’s proposals. Make sure you have your say!

As always, Lorraine has her finger on the pulse of the SEND world. I will follow up on the updates you shared.
To hear my own thoughts and feelings on the national picture being validated by an esteemed colleague such as Lorraine made me feel supported in my role as SENDCO.
Thanks Lorraine for an excellent session – really clearly broken down and useable for me as a SENDCo.
