Education, Health and Care Guidance for Professionals:

In February 2013, the government published the Children and Families Bill. This Bill includes changes to the law for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) in England. The Bill passed through parliament and in March 2014, the government introduced the Children and Families Act.

This Act paved the way for the introduction of a new support system for children and young people with special educational needs and disability (SEND) in England from 1 September 2014. The Act brings together the current separate arrangements for children in schools and young people in post-16 institutions and training up to age 25. The scope of the Act has been extended to include all disabled children and young people, rather than only those with special educational needs.

As the new protocols for SEND are implemented, it is anticipated that this guidance document will be modified to reflect our practice in Camden, in accordance with our statutory duties to children and young people with SEND.
