Inclusion, Equality and the Law


It’s not just about the Children and Families Act – schools need to consider their obligations to Disabled children under the Equality Act too. ALLFIE has written a short guide for schools.

The language of special educational needs can obscure the fact that most children with SEN fall under the protection from discrimination provided by the Equality Act 2010. ALLFIE recently produced this guide for Sec Ed magazine on what schools should be aware of. We will be adding to this information on our website in future so do stay tuned.

If you are interested in the law in this area, we carry a legal question in each edition of Inclusion Now magazine.
