What is the Local Offer?

The Children and Families Bill became enacted in 2014.  From this date, Local Authorities and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) aged 0-25.  This is the ‘Local Offer’.

The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families.  It will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.  As such, our school produces an updated annual SEND report that incorporates the requirements of the Local Offer.

At Clifton-upon-Dunsmore Primary School we are committed to working together with all members of our school community.

Our SEND Policy

The changes in the Children and Families Bill affect the way children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) are supported in schools.  The new approach began in September 2014 and places pupils at the centre of planning.  The key principles of the new legislation are:-

  • Young people and their families should be involved in discussions about the support they need, so they can share their knowledge and feed back to the school on the young person’s progress.
  • Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) will replace statements of Special Educational Needs.  New assessments for additional educational needs will follow the EHCP guidelines from September 2014.  Existing statements will remain in force until all children and young people have completed the transition, which will be within three years.
  • School Action and School Action Plus will cease and be replaced by a single school-based category for children who need extra specialist support.
