Petition SEN review of curriculum, educational and employment opportunities
The Government should conduct a review to investigate the curriculum’s approach to Special Educational Needs, and educational and employment opportunities and barriers for people with Special Educational Needs.
The Government should then consider ways of improving understanding of these needs, and supporting people with these needs. This could include revising the national curriculum, funding for public awareness campaigns, and providing educational and occupational grants.
I am one of over a million students who have Special Educational Needs and have faced my own challenges and personal obstacles.
SEN education requires financial support for productive, positive constructive investment.
People with learning difficulties should be supported to succeed in education and work.
Please support me to make a difference.

What are Westminster Hall debates?
Westminster Hall is the second Chamber of the House of Commons.
Westminster Hall debates give MPs an opportunity to raise local or national issues and receive a response from a government minister. Any MP can take part in a Westminster Hall debate.
Debates in Westminster Hall take place on ‘general debate' motions expressed in neutral terms. These motions are worded ‘That this House has considered [a specific matter]'.
