Some children require extra help at school. This is defined as special educational needs (SEN) and schools take account of this when they plan their work.
A few pupils need special or different arrangements, sometimes just for a short time, sometimes for the whole of their school life. Pupils who need this extra help have special educational needs.
We offer a range of support services to help children with SEN and their parents and carers. Information is now available in one place as our Local Offer.
Our Local Offer information has been developed, in line with government legislation, to allow parents, carers and young people to see more clearly what services are available locally to meet their educational needs and/or disabilities from birth to the age of 25.
