Thousands of Special School Placements announced that no-one has asked for?

Alliance For Inclusive Education needs your stories! As part of the recent Comprehensive Spending Review, the Government has announced that they will be creating thousands of new special school placements for disabled children and young people without any consultation. ALLFIE wants to do something about this so we want to hear from you about your experiences. If you are currently in discussions/ negotiations with a school or local authority and you believe you are being pressured against your personal preference into accepting a special school place or other form of segregated provision (including residential) for your child, we would like to hear from you, particularly when the child is currently at home and/or is in a mainstream school. We would need your contribution by 18th February 2016. We are very sorry for this short notice but we too have only recently been given this date and want to gather as many of your experiences as possible before we miss the opportunity to take action. Please forward this information to anyone you may know. Please send your information to: simone.aspis@allfie.org.uk
