|SEND Code of Practice 2014|
The Children and Families Act 2014 brought with it changes to the way in which support is provided to children and young people in England with Special Educational Needs. A new SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) Code of Practice was implemented on the 1st September 2014 and this new system aims to put each young person and their family at the centre of discussions about the support offered.
|The Local Offer - 'Ordinarily Available'|
In response to the new Code of Practice, Local Authorities must publish a 'local offer' - the things that their schools/services will offer to SEN pupils and their parents. Worcestershire County Council are using the phrase 'Ordinarily Available' to describe the minimum entitlement of SEND pupils in mainstream schools.
The Graduated Response
The Worcestershire Graduated Response has been designed to help ensure children and young people with Special Educational Needs across the Worcestershire reach their full potential. It sets out Local Authority expectations for the ways in which all schools and settings should meet the needs of children and young people with SEND.
There are two versions of the Graduated Response Document available, both of which are available to download below.
