Norfolk SEN Network has been supporting parents of children with special educational needs in Norfolk since 1987
Our aim is to help all parents of children with special educational needs to secure the education which is right for their child
The Children & Families Act 2014 became law on 1st September 2014. It brought sweeping changes to how children with special educational needs are assessed and provision made for them.
Local Authorities have to publish a directory,called the Local Offer, of services that are available to parents and children with SEN throughout Norfolk.

The right of the parents to appeal a decision with regard to provision and/or placement remains the same.
