SEND – Local Offer

All North Yorkshire maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND.)   They are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, whatever their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.   The Local Authority publishes its Local Offer which provides information for children and young people with special educational needs (SEND) and their parents or carers in a single place.

The local offer provides information on a number of things, including:

 · special educational provision;

 · health provision;

 · social care provision;

 · other educational provision;

 · training provision;

 · travel arrangements for children and young people to schools, colleges and early years education; and

 · preparing for adulthood, including housing, employment and leisure opportunities.
