From September 2014, the law around Special Educational Needs and Disability changed.  This means that some processes are now different and there are some key changes with regard to how children with SEND are supported in schools.  A summary of the changes can be found in the Special Education Needs Reforms 2014.

Further information on the changes can be found through the following links:
