'Must Dos': SEND Code of Practice
Within the SEND code of practice, the word ‘must’ refers to a statutory requirement under primary legislation, regulations or case law. References to ‘should’ are not mandatory, but expected unless you can justify otherwise. This document focuses on:
- Chapter 8 (Preparing for Adulthood)
- Chapter 4 (Local Offer)
- A few other helpful sections about Personal Budgets
Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of everything in the SEND code of practice but helps to identify some of the key issues. The numbered paragraphs maybe different depending on which version of the statutory guidance is used.
