Special Educational Needs (SEN) Strategy

Image representing Special Educational Needs (SEN) Strategy

The current Special Educational Needs (SEN) strategy document outlines Powys County Council's strategy for educating children and young people with SEN. 

It also provides guidance on the Authority's policies and procedures for identifying and supporting SEN, including the range of provision available and additional funding to meet needs.

The Welsh Assembly Government have made changes to the current legislation which directs how local authorities support children and young people with additional learning needs:


The Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Act 2018

(The Act) makes provision for a new statutory framework for supporting children and young people with additional learning needs (ALN). This replaces existing legislation surrounding special educational needs (SEN) and the assessment of children and young people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities (LDD) in post-16 education and training. The Act also continues the existence of the Special Educational Needs Tribunal for Wales, which provides for children, their parents and young people to appeal against decisions made by local authority in relation to their or their child's ALN, but renames it the Education Tribunal for Wales.

Excerpt from Additional Learning Needs and Educational Tribunal (Wales) Act: Explanatory Memorandum Incorporating the Regulatory Impact Assessment and Explanatory Notes.
