The Red Book is the acknowledged authority on practice and procedure
'We are delighted to be able to publish this set of factsheets and template letters. We hope that they will prove to be a valuable resource for parents and families who are trying to navigate their way through these legal reforms.
If implemented properly, Part 3 of the Children and Families Act offers a real opportunity to improve provision and outcomes for children with special educational needs and disabilities and ensure that there is genuine co-production and collaborative working between local authorities and parents and young people, and that they are able to participate in decisions as fully as possible.
For this to be successful, we feel it is essential that families are empowered as much as possible with the information and tools that they need to work with local authorities effectively in transferring to the new system. These factsheets and template letters are a small contribution to achieving that goal. We plan to update them as the new system is implemented and any feedback from families on how we can make them as useful as possible for others is welcomed.'
