Norfolk’s Special Needs Shame

A pointer to an article in the EDP that highlights a grave failing in Norfolk, along with raising the possibility of submitting an appropriately worded FOI request.


A single issue post here – I may put another more general one later today…


This starts with an article, in the Eastern Daily Press, by Sophie Biddle which points out that to quote the headline Only one other place in England expels more children with special needs than Norfolk – and I urge you all to read the article in full. 

I wonder how many of these pupils were autistic or had autistic traits.

Since this post is written with my NAS West Norfolk hat on, I conclude with a reminder that we are holding a Postive Autism Awareness Conference at the Dukes Head, Tuesday Market Place, King’s Lynn on April 15th.

The venue for the Positive Autism Awareness Conference.

I am branch secretary of NAS West Norfolk and #actuallyautistic (diagnosed 10 years ago at the comparatively advanced age of 31). I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.
