Ministers have shelved SEND review plans to use performance league tables to reveal how inclusive mainstream schools are.

The SEND and AP green paper said adding contextual information alongside results would “make it easier to recognise” schools that were “doing well for children with SEND”.

While it provided few details, the government admitted it had heard “too many examples” of mainstream schools that were not inclusive, although accountability measures could be seen as “a disincentive” to take on SEND pupils.

But last week’s finalised SEND improvement plan failed to mention the proposal.
