School Admissions & Visits Local Offer Local Offer The Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice (July 2014) states that “Local authorities must publish a Local Offer, setting out in one place information about provision they expect to be available across education, health and social care for children and young people in their area who have SEN or are disabled, including those who do not have Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans. Find out more about our Local Offer here. Read our SEN information report here. The Local Offer has two key purposes: To provide clear, comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date information about the available provision and how to access it, and To make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving disabled children and those with SEN and their parents, and disabled young people and those with SEN, and service providers in its development and review The Local Offer must include provision in the local authority’s area. It must also include provision outside the local area that the local authority expects is likely to be used by disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs for whom they are responsible. It should include relevant regional and national specialist provision, such as provision for children and young people with low-incidence and more complex SEN. We work with nearly 40 local authorities for the placement of students. You can access our local offer from the right hand side of this page but you can also check the local offer in your own local authority. To find contact details for your local authority, please visit the DirectGov website. If any authority would like to request information or to arrange a visit please contact us on [email protected], telephone 01635 245914 or visit our admissions page.
