star this property answer text <p>Our reforms create an expectation that schools will provide transparent information about what they are doing to support pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and engage with parents to shape the support their child receives.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>All schools are required to publish an SEN Information Report. This should explain the implementation of their SEN policy. It should be easily accessible by young people and parents and should use clear, straightforward language. This information must be linked to the Local Offer published by local authorities.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Schools must have regard to the SEND Code of Practice and must use their best endeavours to identify and address the needs of all pupils with SEND. Ofsted have a central role in holding schools to account for the support that is provided. The school inspection framework places an emphasis on how schools meet the needs of pupils with SEND, the quality of teaching and the progress made by those pupils.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We are funding voluntary and community sector organisations to support schools to implement the Code of Practice. This includes the development of the SEND Gateway, a “one stop shop” for all schools to access high quality information, resources and training funded by Government and developed by voluntary and community organisations. This can be accessed online at: <a href="http://www.sendgateway.org.uk/" target="_blank">www.sendgateway.org.uk</a>. In addition, we are funding the Achievement for All programme to provide leadership support to schools to embed the reforms.</p><p> </p><p>Ensuring parents have information about the new system and access to advice and support is a priority for the Government. All local authorities, by law, must provide children and young people with SEN or disabilities, and their parents, with information and advice.</p><p> </p>
