Over a quarter of a million pupils with complex needs have benefitted from tailored Education, Health and Care Plans since 2014, giving them the support they need to fulfil their potential. The high needs budget has also gone up to £6 billion this year, from £5 billion in 2013.
We want to create opportunity for everyone. Employment has risen in every UK region under this government, wages are outstripping inflation, the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers has narrowed and the proportion of 16 and 17-year-olds in education or apprenticeships is at its highest ever.
