Roles and Responsibilities of the SEND Leader


To ensure that the aims and suggestions stated in the SEND Policy and Accessibility plan are carried out and specific provision is allocated after consultation with the child, parents, carers, relevant staff members and outside agencies if appropriate.


The SEND leader and Senior Leadership Team regularly monitor progress for all pupils and alter interventions and support if progress is slower than expected.


We are also in regular contact with outside agencies that offer support and further guidance for different needs.


If you have any concerns about your child or something linked to Special Needs, please do not hesitate to contact Miss Parker.

What is the Local Offer?


The Local Offer is part of the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) reforms from the Children and Families Act 2014.


 There are two main purposes for the Local Offer:


  • to improve information about services and provision available for families, children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, and to make it easier for all families to find this information by making it available in one place.
  • that by working directly with families, children and young people on developing the Local Offer, Local Authorities and Health partners can improve provision.


Lincolnshire’s Local Offer includes leisure and activity providers, health and care services, education providers and support groups.


The Local Offer, as with the rest of the Family Services Directory, is provided to help you find services more easily.  You should always check services and activities are suitable for your needs and those of your family.


Who is it for?


The Local Offer is for children and young people aged 0-25 with special educational needs and/or disabilities, and their families.


It will also help professionals working with families to find the right information.
