SEND Information and Local Offer
From September 2014, all schools are expected to publish information about their provision for special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). This includes the ‘Local Offer’, which helps parents/carers understand what services they and their families can expect from a range of local agencies.

In our school we want to support our pupils to develop into happy, successful citizens. For them to have a sense of belonging in their community finding rewarding work is important. We do this by giving them a breadth of experiences that include working alongside others in cookery, music technology, forest school, mini enterprise and maintenance. In addition each year a range of outside speakers from a diverse variety of jobs come to school and talk with our pupils about life at work and how they were supported to do the job they do. We also regularly take our pupils out to different work places. They are able to learn about the practical side of doing different types of job e.g trade industries, customer service, catering industry. We have a day dedicated to careers education each term to give our pupils an opportunity to focus on their own aspirations for adulthood. Our Life Long Learning teachers Amy Yates and Kerry Fazey will be able to provide further details upon request.
We measure the impact of our careers curriculum through conversations with our pupils prior to their annual review of the EHCP, and through discussions and work produced in our PHSE lessons.
