(UK) Barrow fails disabled students

July 20, 2019, The Mail: Special needs kids in Barrow face funding 'lottery' https://www.nwemail.co.uk/news/17782596.special-needs-kids-barrow-face-funding-39-lottery-39/ CHILDREN in Barrow with special educational needs face a 'lottery' in accessing additional funding, councillors have warned. Barrow council has unanimously agreed to do more to help local children with special education needs or disabilities. It follows a recent report by Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission which identified ‘significant’ areas of weakness to ‘SEND’ services in Cumbria. … Cllr Edwards said: “There has never been a cohesive approach to providing SEND services schools throughout the county. It’s almost a lottery and always has been – regardless of political control.”
