Schools in Feltham and Heston,

I am sure that you are aware that at the end of March, the Department for Education published their education white paper “Opportunity for All: strong schools with great teachers for your children” and their “SEND Review: right support, right place, right time”. You can access the white paper here and the SEND Review here.

Regarding the SEND Review, the Government is holding a consultation, for which the deadline to respond is 11:45pm on the 1st of July 2022.

With the impact and backdrop of the pandemic still affecting day to day school life, I would be very interested to know from you directly on whether you think the measures outlined in the plans will support schools and teachers in delivering for your students. I would particularly appreciate your insight and perspective on a couple of question:

  • What do you see as the current biggest issues being faced by schools?
  • Will the white paper help you as school leaders address these issues? If not, what actions do you think should be taken?
  • From your perspective, what are the biggest SEND issues facing you as a school and in our Hounslow Community?
  • Considering the SEND proposals set out in the green paper, how would you respond to the consultation?

If you could please write to me with your thoughts, I would greatly appreciate it.

Best wishes,

Seema Malhotra MP
