In September 2014, a new statutory Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) was introduced by the Department for Education (DfE). The SEND reforms build on the best practice over the past 13 years since the last Code of Practice was written. They aim to implement a new approach, which seeks to join up help across education, health and care, from birth to 25.
The reforms give schools the freedom to develop what works for them in partnership with their local authority, parents and young people
The reforms underpin the belief that, with the right provision, children with SEN can be supported to achieve good outcomes.
