Children and Families Act in place

The Children and Families Act is now over one year old. The Act brought a wave of reforms including changes to special educational needs and disability (SEND). In Wolverhampton over 80 children and young people’s Statements of special educational needs or Learning Difficulty Assessments (LDAs) have been transferred to Education, Health and Care plans (EHC Plans). To find out more about the reforms why not read our summer magazine.
