This information relates to Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). You can follow the link to the Local Authorities Local Offer page, and have access to the school’s own ‘SEND Information for Parents’ document which outlines what parents can expect at Sacred Heart school.
What is the Local Offer?
The Children and Families Bill was enacted in September 2014. From this date Local Authorities (LA) and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) aged 0-25. The LA refer to this as 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.
What is the Special Education Needs Information Report?
Schools utilise the LA Local Offer to meet the needs of SEND pupils as determined by school policy and the provision that the school is able to provide. Schools refer to this as ‘The Special Education Needs Information Report’.
Our SEND Policy is available in the Policies section of the website.
