When done with empathy and sensitivity, staff can offer ways of understanding why they need to act in this way. This is a much more therapeutic and productive approach verses punishment and blame, which they have sometimes experienced elsewhere. Having new options and gaining different perspectives can be really powerful.

The new arrangements for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)

The SEND reforms introduced by the Children and Families Act 2014 aim to change this, with a focus on two key themes: greater cooperation between education, health and social care and a greater focus on the outcomes which will make a real difference to how a child or young person lives their life.
