1 in 5 primary children with Special Needs has no secondary place.

Almost one in five primary school children in England with special educational needs have been left in limbo after local authorities failed to provide them with a secondary school place, experts have said.

At least 2,421 special needs children who are due to start secondary school in September were not given education plans before the legal deadline, according to data released under freedom of information laws. 

The uncertainty about what school they will go to and whether their support provision will be cut has left vulnerable children crippled with anxiety, lawyers working with families involved said.
