In March 2014 a new act of parliament “The Children and Families Act (2014) was passed. A part of this focused on provision made for children and young people in England with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). As a result, the Government has published a new Code of Practice which schools will follow from September 2014.
A copy of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice: 0-25 years (July 2014) is available to view from www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-code-of-practice-0-to-25
A copy of Special Education Needs and Disability: a guide for parents and carers (August 2014) is also available to view from www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-guide-for-parents-and-carers
A printed copy of either of these documents will be available from the School Office as needed.
