Welcome to our webpage.

What is SEND? (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities)

The Children and Families Act 2014 implemented a new legal framework for SEN Law and reformed legislation relating to children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). The Act placed new duties on local authorities and partner organisations to ensure that children and young people with SEND are supported to achieve the “best possible educational and other outcomes”.

We now have statutory guidance for organisations supporting children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities. This is known as The Code of Practice and provides statutory guidance on duties, policies and procedures relating to Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014 Children and young people in England with special educational needs or disabilities, and associated regulations to be applied in England.
