The Lenehan Review seeks your views on residential special education

News - 08 Feb 2017

Edward Timpson has asked Dame Christine Lenehan to conduct an independent review into the outcomes and experiences of children and young people attending residential special schools and colleges.

The review is designed to enable Dame Christine to make recommendations for improvement, to the Government and other agencies who work with this group of young people, who often have the most complex needs and require more intensive support.
 
To ensure that the review is informed by a wide range of views and evidence from the sector, Dame Christine has launched a call for evidence and is asking for contributions from people working in residential settings, students attending these residential schools and colleges, their parents or carers, and children, young people and adults who have now left these settings. Councils, academics and other sector groups are also encouraged to take part.
 
Please send responses to Lenehan.Review@education.gov.uk by 17th March.
