Alongside the County Local Offer, schools are required to have a School Offer. The aim of this will be to give clear information on how the SEN Code of Practice is implemented in school.

Special Educational Needs (SEN) definition
(i) A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her.
(ii) A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she:
- has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or
- has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions
(iii) For children aged two or more, special educational provision is educational or training provision that is additional to or different from that made generally for other children or young people of the same age by mainstream schools, maintained nursery schools, mainstream post-16 institutions or by relevant early years providers. For a child under two years of age, special educational provision means educational provision of any kind.
(iv) A child under compulsory school age has special educational needs if he or she is likely to fall within the definition in paragraph ii. above when they reach compulsory school age or would do so if special educational provision was not made for them (Section 20 Children and Families Act 2014).

SEND Useful Information for Parents
SEND Parent Coffee Mornings
We are introducing a new opportunity for parents with a child who has SEN or may have SEN, to come and 'drop-in' to school to discuss any concerns or just have a chat. We will be hosting this on a half-termly basis.
Look out for dates in January 2024!
