C&F-Act -briefing _banner

This briefing produced by the CDC policy team gives a really useful summary of the key themes in Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014: children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.

It is not intended to provide a complete description of every section in the Act, but to highlight and explain the most significant requirements of the new legislation. More of the detail of exactly how the Act should be interpreted will be set out in the SEND Code of Practice and this briefing cannot substitute for statutory guidance.
