Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Home / Key Information / Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

In this section of the website we will outline the changes to Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEN-D) and what it means for our children at Sandhurst Primary. As of September 1st 2014 a new Code of Practice for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities was introduced by the Government with statutory guidance for schools following the changes made to the “Children and Families Act 2014”.

Part of the changes made include a requirement that all local authorities produce a “Local Offer” outlining what the authority offer to support children with SEN-D. You can find this by clicking on the link below for the Kent County Council pages.

As a school we are also required to set out our own “Local Offer” setting out what our school will do to support children with SEN-D. This will be set out in our new SEN-D Policy and Information Report.
