Local guidance and policies

SEN support guidance is written for schools and settings and parents. The guidance is designed to help schools to identify a child’s special educational needs, the level of support they offer, and how to arrange and monitor the support given. It also sets out expectations of what they must offer for the funding they receive. These materials can be used to aid discussion between parents and teachers to ensure that children and young peoples’ needs are accurately identified. This information is also designed to help parents / carers understand the support their child might receive.
