Getting the Statement Right
This page provides a practical guide to getting the statement right
Some children may need more help than usually can be provided by schools and this help must be set out on a statement of special educational needs.
Before a statement is written, the local authority will ask your child's school and other professionals to examine your child and write reports.
If the local authority decides to write a statement you have the right to make comments and to ask for the school you want for your child.
