As part of the Children and Families Bill 2014, all schools in Warwickshire are required to publish their school specific information about arrangements for identifying, assessing and making provision for children with Special Educational Needs and/ or Disability (SEND). The collation of school specific information will form part of a county- wide Local Offer of provision.
What is the local offer?
The Children and Families Act 2014 and the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice require the local authority to publish a ‘Local Offer.’ This can be found at: https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/send
The local offer works on four main principles:
Clear information about SEND in our area
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.
