SEND and The Local Offer

From September 2014, all local authorities must publish in one place information about the services they expect to be available in their area for children and young people 0 – 25 who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. This is known as the local offer.

The development of a Local Offer is one of a number of changes to the way children and young people with SEND are supported that are part of the Children and Families Act.

Please note that Emmbrook Junior School is in the process of reviewing the SEN Information Report and Policy. The current policy is under review and an updated version will be available as soon as possible but the current policy remains valid.

What does the Local Offer cover?

The local offer includes information about education, health and social care services, leisure activities and support groups in the area for children and young people aged 0 – 25 with SEND and their families.

There is information about:

  • services and support available
  • how children and young people’s needs are identified and assessed
  • the way schools, colleges and maintained nurseries support children and young people with SEND
  • how to access services and how decisions are made
  • preparation for adulthood and independence
  • arrangements for raising concerns
  • how to comment on the Local Offer

Why is the local offer important?

The Local Offer will help parents, carers and young people to see clearly the range of services and support that are available in their local area and understand how to access them.

Our Local Offer will develop over time with the help of feedback and comments from parents, carers and young people.
