SEND Information and Local Offer

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.
