The Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014 sit underneath the Children and Families Act (CFA) 2014. They set out lots of the detail as to how duties in the CFA 2014 should be carried out. For example, they set out how:

  • EHC needs assessments must be carried out
  • an EHC plan is prepared, what it must contain and when it must be finalised by
  • EHC plans must be reviewed and changed
  • EHC plans may be stopped, 
  • mediation takes place, and
  • deadlines that apply at the end of SEND Tribunal appeals

The SEND Regulations 2014 are law. If they are not being followed, you can contact us for support.
