Children with Special Educational Needs
Most children with special educational needs will attend an appropriate mainstream school where the governing body will be responsible for ensuring their needs are met.
A small number of children who have special educational needs which cannot be met from within the resources normally available to children of a similar age will be assessed by the authority, in accordance with the procedure laid down in the Children and Families Act 2014 and in accordance with the Code of Practice 2014. Assessments are carried out after consultation with parents or guardians who are given full details of the results of assessments.
For children where an Education Health Care (EHC) needs assessment has been carried out and an EHC Plan is issued, dependent on the outcome of the assessment, these children can have their needs provided for in either mainstream schools, designated provisions attached to mainstream schools or special schools.
Any appeal with regard to the school named in the statement would be to the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Tribunal.
