Missing special needs support 'a national scandal' Thousands of children missing out on support for diagnosed special educational needs in England is a "national scandal", Ofsted has said.
There are 2,060 children in 2018 who have education, health and care plans (EHCs) setting out their needs, but who receive no support at all.
Some parents said a child is only assessed when they are excluded.
Ofsted chief, Amanda Spielman, also raised the issue of children disappearing from education. BBC News
