The Department for Education (DfE) issued the SEN Code of Practice in November 2001. It provides practical advice to local authorities, maintained schools, early education settings and others on carrying out their statutory duties to identify, assess and make provision for children's special educational needs.
Special Educational Needs: A guide for parents and carers is also published by the DfE. Copies of both documents can be accessed using the links on this page, or obtained from DfE Publications.
