Parents hope to legally challenge Government on SEND funding

The families of two schoolboys with special educational needs are seeking to legally challenge the Government over its Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) funding policy. The group, calling itself SEND Family Action, argues current grants do not leave local authorities with enough money to fulfil their legal obligation to provide care for pupils with a range of disabilities and conditions. Lawyer Anne-Marie Irwin from Irwin Mitchell, representing the families, said: “The families are concerned that local authorities are not receiving enough funding so wish to investigate whether there are legal grounds to challenge the government over its funding support.”
