In Birmingham we are holding an event along with many others across the country, as part of the SEND National Crisis March.
We will have a particular focus on raising awareness of the funding crisis in schools and how this is impacting on children with SEND. We are seeing increasing issues with provision in both mainstream and special schools, primarily resulting from unprecedented, real term budget cuts from central Government. This means that our most vulnerable children are missing out.
We are also very keen to showcase the amazing SEND kids we have in Birmingham and celebrate all their wonderful achievements. We are organising an exciting, inclusive and collaborative event that is child, SEND and family friendly. We want all people to feel welcome and would love to create a carnival atmosphere where we can celebrate our SEND children and highlight how important it is that we fight for their rights.
Please help us to fund the day so all can run smoothly!
