SEND and Local Offer
How do we support pupils with Special Educational Needs at Holbrook Primary?
This SEND policy outlines the support which is provided in school and will be reviewed in September 2019.
The Local Offer can be found by clicking here.
What is the Local Offer?
In Suffolk we want services that are able to respond to local needs and aspirations. This is why children, young people and their parents/carers work with the county council and partner organisations to review and develop services. The process of services working alongside children, young people and families as partners is called ‘co-production’. This is the definition of co-production that has been agreed by the SEND Strategic Steering Group.
Suffolk's Local Offer website holds information about education, health and care services, as well as leisure activities and support groups – all in one place. Click here for more information.
The information available on the Local Offer website describes the support available to families, and all children and young people with SEN and/or disabilities.
This support includes:
- universal services for example early years and childcare providers, schools and GPs;
- short-term support for children and young people with SEND who require additional support (in addition to what’s provided by universal services); and
- specialist services for children and young people with SEND who need specific longer-term support.
The information about services and support detailed in the Local Offer website, which is part of Suffolk InfoLink, is provided by organisations, and not by Suffolk County Council. Even though an organisation, group, activity or service is included it does not mean it is recommended by Suffolk County Council, or that we have checked its quality. We recommend that you should always check with providers to be confident that their service or organisation meets the needs of your child, children or family.
