P-05-722 Protect Special Educational Needs


This petition was submitted by Nicola Butterfield, having collected 553 signatures.

Text of the Petition

We call upon the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to ensure that spending on the provision of special educational needs is ringfenced, recognising that this is an investment in the children of Wales, and that local authorities should be directed to ensure that adequate levels of funding are available so that those children who require such services are able to go on and live happy and fulfilled lives, while their families are not left to contend with the fear of competing with one another for placements.


This petition was considered completed by the Petitions Committee at its meeting on 23/01/2018.

The Committee agreed to close the petition in light of the previous offer of engagement from Neath Port Talbot County Council, and because no response has recently been received from the petitioner.

Full details of the consideration of this petition by the committee and related documents can be seen at the Meetings tab above.
