The special educational needs and disability (SEND) reforms came into force from 1 September 2014.
The categories of School Action and School Action Plus have been replaced with a new system called special educational needs support.
Statements will be replaced with integrated Education, Health and Care plans (EHCPs) and will apply to children and young persons aged 0-25. The Department for Education (DfE) has produced a document called Information for Governors and a slideshow.
NGA's Special School Governors’ Advisory Group is open to all governors and trustees governing in a special school. If you are interested in joining the group please contact Rani Kaur for more details.
