Bradford Children Let Down Again!

Once again we see a damning report into the failure of Bradford Council's Labour Councillor to lead and manage services this time to children with special educational needs and disabilities. From getting them a school place that meets their needs to assessments and even the basic services such as getting a wheelchair or a place on the bus children are being let down. 

It is less than six months that Labour Councillors were crowing that they were on top of the assessment processes when in truth their work was of variable quality, sometimes inaccurate and didn't even adequately describe the needs of the child. It is unsurprising that parents and carers have lost faith in the system. 

Most worryingly is the failure to develop sufficient places and services for children requiring specialist support. More and more children will find themselves in places that do not meet their needs whilst the failure to properly plan and recruit the transport services has meant that some children will not even get to school. 

This is yet another report on the failure at the top of Bradford Council this time to children with special educational needs and disabilities. Once again the Council logo of being a "Child-Friendly City" is being made a mockery of. Our children deserve much better than this.
