Publication of the SEND Code and announcement of funding for Councils

June 11th, 2014

The Government has published the Special educational needs and disability code of practice: 0 to 25 years. Subject to obtaining Parliamentary approval, it will apply from 1 September 2014 (when the majority of Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014 comes into force).

Alongside the Code, the Government has published a note setting out its intentions for the transitional arrangements and (recently updated) implementation guidance for local authorities and health partners.

The DfE today announced that Councils will receive £45m in funding to prepare for the new SEN regime.
