Herts Local Offer: https://directory.hertfordshire.gov.uk/kb5/hertfordshire/directory/localoffer.page
All Hertfordshire Local Authority (LA) maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the LA to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.
All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.
The four broad ‘areas of need’ are Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and Sensory and Physical Needs.
All children and young people at Bromet School with SEND have access to high quality educational and pastoral provision that meets their needs.
What is the Local Offer?
The LA Local Offer
- The Children and Families Bill (2014) requires Local Authorities and schools to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) aged 0-25. This is the ‘Local Offer’.
- This can be found: https://beta.hertfordshire.gov.uk/microsites/local-offer/the-hertfordshire-local-offer.aspx
- The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.
The School SEN Information Report
This utilizes the LA Local Offer to meet the needs of SEN pupils as determined by school policy, and the provision that the school is able to meet.
