Special, Educational Needs and Disabilities
By 2014, schools are required to publish information about services they provide for children with disabilities and Special Educational Needs. This is called the ‘local offer’. All schools in the local area have a similar approach to supporting children with SEN and are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.
The intention is to offer choice and transparency for families, as well as providing a resource for professionals to detail the range of services and provision locally.
