At Hallfield Primary School we want to make sure that every child gets the best support we can offer in order to help them to enjoy their learning, feel confident and happy amongst their friends and make the best possible progress.
Every child has individual needs that might affect their learning. Sometimes children need special support to give them an extra boost or to help them catch up with other children of the same age. They may need this support for a short time or a longer period, but during this time they will be part of our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Register and we will keep a close eye on their progress, look carefully at what extra support they need and keep in close touch with their parents.
The Children and Families Bill Act 2014 requires Local Authorities (LA) and schools to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with SEND aged 0-25. This is the ‘SEND Information Report’.
The purpose of the Local Offer is to enable parents and young people to find out more easily the services that are available in their area and how to access them. The Local Offer will include provision from birth to 25, across education, health, social care and the voluntary sector.
For Children and Young People between 0-25 Years with SEND, Westminster City LA have put together information to help you find out about all the services that exist in your local area. This is the LA SEND Information Report:
This utilises the Local Authority SEND Information Report to meet the needs of SEND pupils as determined by school policy and the provision that Hallfield is able to provide. Hallfield’s Local Offer is outlined in the Information Report below and is in the form of questions and answers.
