In accordance with the Children and Families Act, we are required to publish and review information about the services that are available for children and young people aged 0-25 with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities). This is known as “The Local Offer”.

The purpose of the Local Offer is to enable parents and young people to see more clearly what services are available in their area and how to access them. The offer includes provision from birth to 25, across education and health and social care. It is developed in conjunction with children and young people, parents and carers, and local services including schools, colleges, health and social care agencies.
