  • Around half of MPs (45%) are concerned about local authorities’ ability to provide children’s services given cuts to local government
  • Seven in ten MPs (70%) agree that, if the placement best suits the needs of the child, children should be placed with an independent provider rather than the local authority
  • Almost half of MPs (45%) say that the figure of two thirds of looked after children having a special educational need is higher than they expected
  • Two in five MPs (42%) say that the figure of 52% of pupils with SEN progressing to Higher Education compared to 63% without SEN is higher than they expected.
