SEN Code of Practice 2014

SEND Code of Practice

SEND Code of Practice – September 2014

In September 2014 there were changes to the law for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).  A new Code of Practice was published in September 2014, which is the statutory document that schools need to follow.

Please click on the links for more information. There is an open letter to parents from the Department for Education and a parent carer’s guide from the Council for Disabled Children.

For more information about how we identify and support pupils with SEND at St Mary’s, please visit the ‘Policies’ section of our website, where you will find our current SEND policy and our school offer.  This document clearly sets out the support available at St Mary’s for children with SEND.

We value your support very highly, so if you have any questions about the Code of Practice or ways we can help you and your child with regard to SEND, please make an appointment to speak to your child’s class teacher or Mrs Jones, the SEND Co-Ordinator.
