Increase in SNAs for 2014/15 school year

I welcome the news that nearly a third of schools will have increased Special Needs Assistant (SNA) support in the coming school year. The NCSE announced SNA allocations for the 2014/15 school year earlier today.
The principle of providing every eligible child with SNA support is at the heart of what Labour is achieving in government. Today’s allocation confirms that commitment, despite the difficulty in resources.
Nearly a third of schools – 29 per cent - will see an increase in their SNA support, while over half, or 51 per cent, will see their current SNA allocation maintained. This is a remarkable achievement in the recessionary times we are in, and a testament to Labour’s commitment to education.
