Local Offer

Local Offer Responses Crib Sheet

When the Children and Families Bill becomes enacted in 2014 local authorities will be required to publish and keep under review information from services that expect to be available for children and young people with SEND aged 0-25. The intention of this local offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. From the Local Offer parents and carers will know what they can reasonably expect from their local area. It will also be an important resource for professionals in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area. This information will be web based and there is an expectation that all providers will need to answer the 14 questions [as referenced to in this document]. We have added prompts as guidance but there may be more information that you would like to add about your setting.

1) How does the setting / school / college know if children/young people need extra help and what should I do if I think my child/young person may have special educational needs?


  • How do you identify children/young people with special educational needs?
  • How will I be able to raise any concerns I may have?
  • If the setting / school / college is specialist which types of special educational need do you cater for?
