"The Ultimate purpose of SEN provision is to enable young people to flourish in adult life.  There are therefore strong educational, as well as social and moral, grounds for educating children with SEN with their peers.  We aim to increase the level and quality of inclusion within mainstream schools, while protecting and enhancing specialist provision for those who need it."
