This is a very welcome book that seeks to broaden and deepen understanding of the SEND Code of Practice as well as enabling readers to challenge it. It involves a novel in-depth historical and policy analysis and deserves a wide readership.
This book helps school leaders to understand their responsibilities as stated in the SEND Code of Practice, and also challenges them to think about the controversies they could face in its implementation. Issues rarely focused on in books for practitioners, such as professionalism, ethics and moral dilemmas, are explored.
Beate uses the changes in the SEND Code of Practice to explore a range of topics in this book. It contains useful information about the history of SEND policy and legislation and its implications, the impact of changes to the policies for professional practice, and the dilemmas of partnership working with the family, the child and other professionals. This will be a good resource book for anyone who is interested in the relationship between policy development and professional practice.
This excellent and timely book equips the reader with broad knowledge on the updated SEND Code of Practice, as well as the history of SEND. As the title suggests, in understanding better, the reader is enabled in challenging current legislation. A well recommended read, particularly for SEND professionals but all teachers/trainers/leaders would benefit.
