In July 2014, the Department for Education (DfE) issued the special educational needs and disability (SEND) Code of Practice 2014. The new Code came into force on 1 September 2014.
This page is part of the Local offer for Havering. Under the Children and Families Bill, which becomes law in 2014, Local Authorities are required to publish, and keep under review, information about services that they expect to be available for children and young people with disabilities and Special Educational Needs aged 0-25. This is called the Local Offer. The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for professionals in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.
