The Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND) Code of Practice 2015 states that:
“Where it is decided to provide SEN support, and having formally notified the parents, the practitioner and the SENCO should agree, in consultation with the parent, the outcomes they are seeking, the interventions and support to be put in place, the expected impact on progress, development or behaviour, and a clear date for review. Plans should take into account the views of the child. The support and intervention provided should be selected to meet the outcomes identified for the child, based on reliable evidence of effectiveness, and provided by practitioners with relevant skills and knowledge.” (P86 para 5.40 SEND Code of Practice 2015)
On this page you can access documentation to support the process of developing a plan for a child whose learning and development needs cannot be met through the general planning and provision provided. Targeted plans should be written in partnership with parents of the child and other professionals where appropriate.
