The Local Offer sets out at the ‘local authority level’ what the Local Authority expects to be available in every school. This is available here: www.lancashire.gov.uk/SEND
The above website also contains links to many other agencies which provide support to children with SEND and their families.
Our SEND Information Report sets out in greater detail what provision is available in our school. Please follow the tabs on this page for the SEND Information Report and SEND Policy.
The Lancashire Local Offer Facebook page has lots of information and support for parents including information on support groups and activities for children with SEND and their families in the local area: www.facebook.com/LancashireLocalOffer/
As a school we are committed to the belief that every child is an individual who brings something special to the school community. All children, regardless of ability, background or ethnicity, have the right to participate in and enjoy all aspects of school life, and have the opportunity to meet their full potential.
