SEND Reforms

 

The Children and Families Act 2014 – SEND Reforms

 

This is a wide ranging piece of legislation designed to give greater protection to vulnerable children and young people. Key elements of the Act are changes to the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) system, to be effective 1 September 2014. There will also be a new legal duty on schools to better support children with medical conditions. The Act extends the SEN system from birth to 25, and gives children, young people and their parents greater choice and control in decisions, ensuring needs are properly met.
