The New SEN Code of Practice 2014

The main changes from the SEN Code of Practice (2001) reflect the changes introduced by the Children and Families Act 2014. These are:

• The Code of Practice (2014) covers the 0-25 age range and includes guidance relating to disabled children and young people as well as those with SEN
• There is a clearer focus on the participation of children and young people and parents in decision-making at individual and strategic levels
• There is a stronger focus on high aspirations and on improving outcomes for children and young people
• It includes guidance on the joint planning and commissioning of services to ensure close co-operation between education, health and social care
• It includes guidance on publishing a Local Offer of support for children and young people with SEN or disabilities
• There is new guidance for education and training settings on taking a graduated approach to identifying and supporting pupils and students with SEN (to replace School Action and School Action Plus)
• For children and young people with more complex needs a co-ordinated assessment process and the new 0-25 Education, Health and Care plan (EHC plan) replace statements and Learning Difficulty Assessments (LDAs)
• There is a greater focus on support that enables those with SEN to succeed in their education and make a successful transition to adulthood
• Information is provided on relevant duties under the Equality Act 2010
• Information is provided on relevant provisions of the Mental Capacity Act 2005
