Offering a clear but critical overview and interrogation of the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice 2015, this book provides the context for understanding recent developments in SEND policy reform. It also considers implications for SEND professionalism and partnership working. The book also successfully links policy and theory to practice and has a focus on professional ethics. This book is aimed primarily at higher level students on Masters and professionals engaged in Continuing Professional Development (CPD), and is supported by chapter objectives, case studies, summaries of key concepts and annotated further reading suggestions.
A much needed book, raising questions and provoking thought processes.
This is a good read for SEND students to really grasp the Code of Practice.
This has become part of our Inclusive practice module. It has been incredibly powerful and useful for trainees to develop their understanding of the Code of Practice.
The first module for the NASENCO Award at the University of Worcester looks at policy and legislations and their implications for practice. This publication takes a critical look at both policy and legislation, doing so in a well informed way. This is a welcome addition to the SENCO reading list.
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.
