Ashlands Primary School

"Where every child has the chance to shine"

SEN and Local Offer

Ashlands Primary School is committed to enabling every pupil to reach their potential.

We have high expectations of all our children and we want them to feel that they are a valued part of our school community.

We provide a broad, creative and balanced curriculum. We are committed to supporting children to access this to the best of their ability by removing barriers to learning or participation and making reasonable adjustments where necessary.

These barriers may arise as a consequence of a child having special educational needs (SEND).

Children are identified as having a special educational need:

If they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her.

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

(SEN and Disability Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years Guidance 2014)

Children may have SEND either throughout or at any time during their school career.

Local Offer

The Children and Families Act (2014) placed a new requirement on all Local Authorities to publish a Local Offer. The Local Offer must provide information on services across Education, Health and Social Care for children and young people who are aged 0 -25 years of age and have special educational needs and / or disabilities (SEND)

The Local Offer includes local provision and provision outside of the area that is likely to be used including regional and national specialist provision.

The purpose of the Local Offer is to provide:

  • Clear, comprehensive and accessible information about the available service, activities, support and how families can access it.
  • The aim is to make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs, their parents / carers and services providers in its development and review. It aims to bring everything together in one place.
  • The purpose of the Local Offer is to make it easier to find out what you need to know, when you need to know it. Showing you the nearest and most suitable services, letting you give feedback, raise concerns or make a comment or complaint.
