SEND Policies and Strategies
Current policies and strategies that underpin the decisions we make on what is provided for children and young people between 0 and 25 years old with special educational needs and or disabilities(SEND) and their families
What we must do
The Local Offer has to cover education, health and social care services for people from birth to 25 years old that have special educational needs and or disabilities (SEND). We have to tell you what's available, who it’s for and how to use it.
The Local Offer has to be available online. We also have to provide printed information for people without their own internet connection. This explains how they can access the information on the site.
We have to give people helpful information about relevant topics and services. Not just a list of what’s out there. We make sure that all the information on our Local Offer is correct and up to date.
We have to use feedback from the people the Local Offer is for (that’s you) to help us improve it. We also have to publish the feedback we get and tell you what we've done about it.
