Up to 450,000 children to lose their extra help for special needs

As many as 450,000 children could be removed from school special needs registers because they have been wrongly labelled as requiring extra help, the Government will announce today.

Campaigners fear the cuts could leave thousands of children "cut adrift". One in five school children in England is on the register.
The rules are designed to toughen up the diagnosis of behavioural and learning problems, amid concerns that schools are abusing the system to disguise poor teaching and climb league tables.
