What is the local offer?
The Local offer is a key requirement of the government reforms within the children's and families Act 2014. Each local Authority is required to collaborate with children and young people with SEND and those caring for them, to co-produce a Local Offer.
This offer will provide information about the services available to support children with SEND and their families and demonstrate how these services can be assessed and what can be expected from each school. Each school is required to contribute to this offer by publishing the details of how they endeavour to support and enhance the learning experiences for pupils with SEND.
In order to communicate this offer effectively, 14 questions have been devised in consultation with parents, carers and other agencies. These questions reflect their concerns and interests to provide information you need to plan for your child's learning experiences.
