Note in Lieu
What is a Note In Lieu?
A Note In Lieu is a document written in place of a Statement of Special Educational Needs. If the Council decides that your child's needs can be met with the support being provided by the school at School Action Plus, a Note In Lieu will be issued. It is not a legal document.
A Note In Lieu will describe your child's educational needs; give the reasons why a Statement has not been written; provide suggestions for the school about how to meet your child's needs; describe your child's other needs
Copies of all the advice and reports received as part of the statutory assessment will be sent to you with the Note In Lieu.
