DfE publishes indicative draft of new SEN Code of Practice

The DfE has published the new Special Educational Needs Code of Practice in 'indicative draft' form.

The document sets out draft guidance on policies and procedures aimed at supporting children and young people with SEN. It reflects the SEN provisions set out in the Children and Families Bill, and provides guidance on carrying out the duties in the legislation. It is described as a 'work in progress', with both content and structure subject to change.
