All Local authorities must publish a Local Offer, which outlines the provision they expect to be available to children with SEN.
All local authorities must publish a Local Offer, setting out in one place information about provision they expect to be available across education, health and social care for children and young people in their area who have SEN or are disabled.
The Local Offer has two key purposes:
to provide clear, comprehensive and accessible information about the available provision and how to access it
to make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving disabled children and those with SEN and their parents, and disabled young people and those with SEN, and service providers in its development and review
The school cooperates with the local authorities in the local area to:
make families aware of the kind of support available to them and where to find the Local Offer
help people access the Local Offer information, especially where there are barriers to them accessing it. This can include helping them to access the internet, printing off pages, explaining and interpreting
consult children and young people and their families directly in preparing and reviewing the Local Offer
keeping the Local Offer information up to date and identifying gaps in provision
