SEND (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities)

As part of the government’s reforms around special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and with the introduction of the new code of Practice in September 2014, local authorities are required to publish a local offer showing the support available to disabled children and young people and those with SEND and their families and carers.
