We have known for some time that the reforms in the Children and Families Bill will introduce wholesale changes to the SEN system in England. The Government has now begun to fill in the detail by publishing drafts of key documents including the new SEN Code of Practice and Regulations on:
• The Local Offer
• SEN Information for Parents
• The new Statutory Assessment process and EHC Plans
• Personal Budgets,
and other aspects of the system.
All these documents are open for consultation giving you the opportunity to tell the Government how you would like to see the changes working in practice. Please comment if you can. The consultation is open until 9 December and you can read the documents and download the response forms.
