Information Report for Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)
What is the Local Offer?
As part of the Children and Families Bill 2013, the government transformed the system for children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN), including those who are disabled, so that services consistently support the best outcomes for them.
Local authorities are required to publish and keep under review the provision available for young people with SEN and details the services families can expect from a range of local agencies, including education, health and social care. This is the 'Local Offer'. Knowing what is out there gives families more choice and therefore more control over what support is right for their child.

What is the PE and Sport Premium?
The government has provided additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is referred to as the Sports Premium and is given directly to schools for them to choose how they spend this money in their school.
