SEND  Local Offer

What is the Local Offer?

The Children and Families Act places a duty on every Local Authority to publish a Local Offer, setting out in one place information on the provision they expect to be available in their area for children and young people (from 0-25 years) who have SEN and Disabilities (SEND)

It is a ‘front door’ to information on the SEND provision from the Local Authority, Health, schools and settings and the voluntary sector.

The Local Offer has two main purposes:

  • to provide clear, comprehensive and accessible information about the support and opportunities that are available; and
  • to make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving children and young people with SEN, parents/carers, and service providers in its development and review.

Cambridgeshire's 'Local Offer' can be found on the website

Our SEND policy can be found below together with weblinks to impartial SEND information and advice for parents.
