P-06-1342 Fund more specialist school places and staff for children with additional learning needs in Wales
This petition was submitted by Stevie Pyne, having collected a total of 1,429 signatures.
Text of Petition:
To look at funding provided for specialist provisions in Wales for children with additional needs it’s far from acceptable children with a high level of need being forced to stay in a mainstream environment due to spaces in schools and schools being underfunded and understaffed!
Specialist schools and unit base provisions throughout Wales are already full to capacity and the ones who aren’t yet will not be far behind. Schools are understaffed, staff are overworked already, ALN children are unable to receive the education and support they so rightfully deserve from the start, in many cases early intervention is extremely important and these chances are being taken away from children due to the crisis we are facing within our education system.
