Children’s Minister announces SEN reforms

Secretary of State for Children and Families Edward Timpson has announced a series of reforms for special educational needs (SEN) in schools to be implemented by September 2014.

SEN statements will be substituted for a new package of co-ordinated support for children and young people across agencies and Local Areas
