Range Guidance Review
 
Why are we updating the Range Guidance?
 
•Since the previous version of the Range Guidance was produced, there have been significant changes within both SEN and Education. The new Code of Practice for SEND, Fair Funding and Assessment without Levels have all led to the Range Guidance becoming outdated and misleading.
 
•In addition, issues relating to school funding and pressure on the High Needs Block mean it is more important than ever that schools and LA have a shared view of their individual responsibilities.
 
•The Revised Range Guidance attempts to address all of these issues and provide clear consistence advice. It is based on existing models of good practice eg the Wigan Inclusive Quality First Teaching Audit and existing Bradford tools such as the SEN Progress Grids and SEN Support Grid.
 
Introducing the Revised Range Guidance
 
The Guidance has three parts:
 
Bradford Special Educational Needs Descriptors
 
•This document describes the complexity of the young person’s need where Range 1 is the lowest level of need and Range 5 the most complex. This is established using the Bradford SEN Progress Grids, alongside the SEND Descriptors and other assessment tools. 
 
Bradford SEND Graduated Approach Summary
 
•Graduated Approach: ie the type and magnitude of intervention that should be put in place for the young person, in accordance with their identified SEN Range and  based on the SEND Interventions Grid.
 
• SEN Support Offer: this clarifies where the support should take place and the source of funding for this.
 
• Evidence: This indicates the documentation that schools should be able to provide to evidence their judgement regarding Range / Graduated approach.
