Guide to new SEND Code of Practice 2014

New SEND Code of Practice Guidance


The Department for Education produces statutory guidance called the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice, which must be followed by the Local Authority, Schools, Health, and other organisations working with children and young people.


The Department for Education also produces guidance for families called Special Educational Needs and Disability - guide for parents and carers. This provides useful information on what the law says about Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND), key points about the SEND Code of Conduct, and what to expect from the system which supports children and young people with SEND.
