IndicativeDraft: The (0-25) SpecialEducationalNeedsCodeofPractice This indicative draft CodeofPractice is provided to Parliament to aid consideration of the SEN Clauses in Part 3 of the Children and Families Bill and the related draft indicative regulations. It is work in progress. Officials in the Department for Education are leading the process of drafting the CodeofPractice. They will be producing a subsequent draft for formal consultation later in 2013 prior to a final draft being placed before Parliament for approval in time for it to come into force alongside the Children and Families legislation. This draft takes account of the widespread consultation that took place to develop the package of reforms included in the Children and Families Bill and the prelegislative scrutiny of the reforms. It also reflects the provisions in the related draft indicative regulations. The draft Code and regulations are necessarily indicative and will be developed considerably further to reflect the passage of the Bill through Parliament as well as the emerging evidence from the pathfinder programme testing the SEN reforms in 20 pathfinders across England.
