The academy’s SENCO is Mr P Wilkinson.

The Children and Families Act 2014 aims to improve integrated support for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities across Education, Health and Social Care for 0 – 25 year olds.  The revised SEND Code of Practice (June 2014) means that there will be:-

  • A single system giving support across Education, Health and Social Care
  • A joint commissioning approach across Education, Health and Social Care
  • An Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC Plan) will replace the current SEN Statements and Learning Difficulties Assessments (139a)
  • A personal budget offer will be available for those with an EHC Plan
  • Local Authorities will have to publish clear and transparent ‘SEN&D Local Offer’

The main drivers of the new Reforms are:

  • To improve the outcomes for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and their families
  • To improve the process for accessing services by having clear, single, cohesive pathways
  • To improve the level and transparency of information and support available to families
  • To increase the level of choice and control children, young people and their families have over the services and support they receive
