Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
From 1st September 2014, all local areas in England were required to implement key reforms related to the new Children’s and Families Bill and the new SEND Code of Practice.
Milton Keynes Council has begun the process of converting Statements of Special Educational Needs and Learning Difficulty Assessments to Education Health and Care Plans.
The new SEN code of practice heralds big changes in the way everyone works together to achieve better outcomes for children and young people with special educational needs, aged 0 – 25 years. Parent carers have welcomed the changes as a more holistic way of working. The child/young person will be at the centre of the process and all agencies will work together to produce and review the plan.
Milton Keynes SEND Local Offer is a directory of information about education, health and care services, as well as leisure activities and support groups, for children and young people with SEN and/or disabilities (SEND) from birth to 25 years, their parents and carers, practitioners and professionals.
