Knowledge gap;Letter

I was astounded to read that Estelle Morris "plans to extend the special needs code of practice to pre-school children" (TES, April 30). Since the onset of government funding for four-year-olds, all early-years settings have had to have regard for the code. I find it disconcerting that an education minister is unaware of this.
