Children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) represent a significant 20.5% of the school population, yet the provision of a high quality education for this group of children is often hampered by the lack of teaching expertise and specialism in SEN. This report focuses on the issues of teacher training and teacher expertise in relation to SEN, and seeks to make recommendations aimed at ensuring that teachers are adequately equipped to provide all children with the education to which they are entitled.
