We are constantly developing, updating and reviewing the Local Offer.
This short film tells children and young people with SEND about the Local Offer. It also covers how children and young people, and their families can get involved in their local area to give their views and opinions about what services should be offered.
The Local Offer covers:
- education, health and care provision for children and young people with SEND
- arrangements for identifying and assessing children and young people with SEND, including arrangements for requesting an EHC needs assessment
- other education provision (outside of schools or colleges, such as sports or arts provision), training provision, including apprenticeships
- arrangements for travel to and from schools, post-16 institutions and early years providers
- support to help children and young people in moving between phases of education and to prepare for adult life
- sources of information, advice and support in the area relating to SEND, parent carer forums, support groups, childcare and leisure activities
- arrangements for making complaints, for solving disagreements, mediation and parents' and young people's rights to appeal
