Open letters to schools, further education, teachers and parents on the SEND reforms

Children’s minister Edward Timpson has written to teachers, colleges, local authorities and parents about the SEND reforms.

These letters describe the changes the Department for Education is introducing in September 2014 to improve support for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

The first 3 letters ask local authorities, colleges and teachers working with children with SEND to implement the reforms correctly.

The fourth letter is for parents of children with SEND and explains what the move to the new system will mean for them and their family.
