Easier access for EOTAS

We the undersigned petition the council to To have an effective and flexible policy surrounding EOTAS (Education Otherwise Than at School). Especially surrounding children with disabilities that impact their sensory and creates huge anxiety, which makes school an unsuitable environment to learn in.

This would be supportive to a child's mental health and could actually save the Council money and is a better use of funding vs paying for an empty classroom space. Some SEN schools will charge huge amount of funding and the child could be supported better with a bespoke package and in an environment they are more likely to progress.
It would also free up a space that could go to another SEN child and save costs on keeping children more local vs sending them to another county via taxi.

This ePetition runs from 19/04/2023 to 31/10/2023.
