Education secretary David Blunkett told BBC Radio Four's Today programme this morning that the government proposals to bring special needs children more into mainstream schooling would need both investment and imagination.

'We need an integrated system where the specialist facilities act as a resource for the rest of the schooling system', he said.

The government wants to shift the approach to special needs pupils away from statementing and on to early intervention to tackle their problem early on in their school career, he said.

A Green Paper - Excellence for all Children - Meeting Special Educational Needs - will be available on LGCnet after its publication today.
