In September 2014 most of the provisions in the Children and Families Act that relate to children and young people with SEN and disabilities came into force. CDC have worked with nasen and the SEN Leaders programme to produce a briefing on:

  • what the reforms mean for schools one year on
  • who has responsibility for what 
  • what support is available for schools

Schools may want to use the briefing to check how they are doing.
