Information and Guidance

Statements of SEN will be converted to Education, Health and Care Plans (EHC Plans) over the next three years. Pupils at points of transition within education (e.g. Reception to Year 1, Year 6 to High School) will be a priority. Any new application for recognition for Special Educational Needs, if successful, will automatically be an EHC Plan.

These new plans bring together Health, Education and Social care in one document with statutory accountability. The design of the plan ensures that all of a pupils’ needs are identified and provision put in place rather than as previously where non educational needs were often overlooked.

The New SEN Code of Practice is available to download at the bottom of the page.  Our school SEN Policy can be found by following this link. 

The links below maybe of interest to parents of pupils with SEN/D.
