The 4th Annual SEND Conference: Improving Outcomes for All Children and Young People


Who: Inside Government

When: Wednesday 18th June 2014, 09:00 - 16:30.

Where: Cavendish Conference Centre - London


There are 2 million children in the UK currently identified as living with special educational needs and /or disabilities (SEND). In order to ensure that all children and young people are able to reach their potential the UK government is committed to raising the standard of support available.
Furthermore, The Children and Families Act, given royal assent in March 2014, cited as being 'the biggest reform in 30 years' sets out new proposals for the care and support of children with SEND. These include a new duty for joint commissioning, a stronger focus on preparing young people for adulthood and further education colleges and academies to have the same duties as maintained schools in safeguarding the education of children and young people with SEN. With implementation beginning in September 2014 preparation for this is vital.
Moreover, in January 2014 the government announced the introduction of SEN Champions who will help navigate the new special education needs process. The government announced £30million of funding to recruit and train a pool of 'independent supporters' who will support the families of children and young people with SEND understand the comprehensive reforms.
