SEND - the Local Offer

The Children and Families Act, came into effect from September 2014. The Act changes the way in which children and young people (0-25) with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities are supported at school and in the community.

The key principles of the act are to ensure that parents/ carers and children and young people are more involved in decisions that affect their lives. Education, health and social services work more closely together to ensure that children and young people are supported to achieve their outcomes they want and need in their lives to reach their aspirations.
