SEND Reforms

A Simple Overview

The Children and Families Bill was enacted on 1st September 2014. This means there will be changes for children and families who have special educational needs.

The definition of Special Educational Needs (SEN) will remain, however, some familiar process and terms will change to provide an Educational Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and may include the provision of a personalised budget.

One of the key intentions of these changes is to improve parental accessibility,choice and control.
