What are the “Stages of the Code of Practice”?
3.1 out Of 5 Stars
The stages come from the “Code of Practice on the Identification and Assessment of SEN”. The Code is statutory guidance and there is a legal duty upon decision-makers to have regard to it. The current Code has 5 stages. However, a new SEN framework, which has 3 stages, is gradually being rolled out by the Department of Education and the Education Authority (EA).
You can find out more about the stages in our SEND Parent / Carer Information Sheet, developed along side Angel Eyes as part of our EqualEyes project.
