This report presents the findings from stage two of the evaluation of the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEN and Disability) Pathfinder Programme commissioned by the Department for Education in September 2011.
This resource draws together the key findings from a large-scale investigation to find out ‘what works’ in SEN support. It accompanies the ‘SEN support: research evidence on effective approaches and examples of current practice in good and outstanding schools and colleges’ resource and is designed to inform the decisions leaders make about supporting learners with SEN in their settings.
The provisions in the Children and Families Act 2014 and the new ‘0 to 25 Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice’ are a significant set of cultural and systematic changes which are designed to improve outcomes of children and young people with SEND.
This slide pack has been designed to help school leaders in mainstream schools engage governors and staff so that they understand what is changing and what isn’t changing. It is not formal department guidance.
