This is one of a series of information resources made available to services providing information advice and support under the SEND Code of Practice.

The information resources are intended to offer an introduction to parts of the SEND Code of Practice and to complement the DfE Parents’ Guide.

Members of the NPPN may adapt this information resource for local use. The information resources can be used for the production of web-based information and materials, leaflets and other types of information.

Each information resource includes opportunities to insert information and links to local services, policies, documents and other relevant sources of information, advice and support.
