Making sense of SEND Law

This 2.5 hour session has been specifically designed for groups of parents/carers who want a ‘rights based’ insight into the SEND framework. The aim of the course is to provide attendees with an introduction to the relevant parts of the SEND legal framework including:·

Legal duties on education settings who are responding to children and young people with SEND – SEN support; what can be done if things are not going well and ‘SEND misconceptions’·

EHC needs assessment – the test in law and myths; requesting an assessment and evidence required; appeal rights if the LA say no; what must happen as part of the assessment if the LA say yes and finally; what you can do if things aren’t being done properly

There will be a Q&A session during and at the end of the webinar.

The webinar will be delivered by Claire Jackson from SENETA. Claire has 18 years experience in SEND which includes providing advice and representation to parents and carers.

A Zoom link will be sent to participants two days prior to the event.
