Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND) – Our ‘Local Offer’
A new duty in the SEN Code of Practice was placed on schools from September 2014 and this is referred to as the 'Local Offer'.  The purpose of the Local Offer is to 'offer' information for parents, in a single place, which helps them to understand what services they and their family can expect from a range of local agencies - including their statutory entitlements; and make clear what is available for their child from our school. 

The SEND page of our school website contains important information which can be used to support families of children with Special Educational Needs and/or a disability (SEND). We have also put together a leaflet which summarises our ‘Local Offer’. We are continually working to update the information in this section so please look out for updates.  If you need any help, please contact the School Office or our SEND-Co, Mrs Baker.

Parents can use the following link to access the 'Local Offer' provided by Gloucestershire.

Here is a link to Glos Families Directory where you can find information about all of the support services available in Gloucestershire.
