Ensuring children's needs are met.

There are 17,251 children in Wales with a statement of special education needs (SEN).

An Assembly spokesman said schools and LEAs are expected to follow the SEN Code of Practice for Wales.

He said, 'A statement is a legally binding document on the LEA which has a legal duty to ensure that what is set out in the statement is provided.'

Children should be given an Individual Education Plan which is an 'individual record that sets out the strategies employed to enable a child to make progress... Parents dissatisfied with the support can take their child's case to the SEN tribunal and the tribunal's decision is binding.'
