Council pushes forward with funding commitment to create more places for specialist education in Suffolk

Suffolk, like many other local authorities, faces a large increase in demand for placements for a variety of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Suffolk’s SEND Sufficiency Plan (2018) identified that the number of children and young people with SEND will increase by 18% between 2017 and 2020. This compares to an overall growth in the school age population in Suffolk of 4%.

Potholes, by the numbers.

Two million, fourteen thousand, nine hundred and sixty-seven to be precise. That’s how many potholes Conservative-run councils have fixed since 2016.
