Special Education Needs

This is a complex area of law and many parents can feel at a loss when they first encounter all of the procedures. We at Educarers realise the stress that parents face as they are often coming to terms with their child’s long-term conditions and at the same time dealing with complex and detailed legislation.

Special Educational Needs (SEN) are defined in section 312 of The Education Act 1996 as a learning difficulty.

Schools are required to have systems in place to help students with SEN and each school should have a SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co- coordinator). The SENCO is a teacher who is responsible for the schools policy on SEN.

The SEN code of practice is a complicated and detailed document and is important to any application that is to be made on behalf of the child.

We can assist in the following areas:-

  • Applying for a statutory assessment

  • Assisting you through the statementing process

  • Advising you through the appeal process to special educational Needs and Disability Tribunal (SEND)
