‘The governing bodies of maintained schools and maintained nursery schools and the proprietors of academy schools have a legal duty to publish information on their websites about the implementation of the governing body’s or the proprietor’s policy for pupils with SEN. The information published must be updated annually and any changes to the information occurring during the year must be updated as soon as possible. The information required is set out in the draft Special Educational Needs (Information) Regulations and reflects the information required for the local offer’.
Schools should ensure that the information is easily accessible by parents and is set out in clear, straightforward language. This should include information on the school’s SEN policy, named contacts within the school where parents have concerns and details of the school’s contribution to the local offer.
The North Yorkshire local offer can be found below.

A collective voice for parents of children with additonal needs and disabilities
The Parent Partnership Coordinators can offer impartial advice and support which could include making a home visit to listen to any concerns you may have, or attend meetings with you. They may also be able to put you in touch with other organisations or parent support groups. A Parent Partnership Co-ordinator can be contacted through North Yorkshire on 0845 034 9469.
There is also a document called the Individual Provision Map that is passed on to the next school. This documents all the interventions that have happened in primary school along with other information such as interests, levels and recent achievements.
Children with SEND will also have extra visits to their new setting in order for them to become familiar with the routines of the day.
Once the secondary school place has been confirmed then a meeting will be set up with parents, the current school SENCO and the SENCO from the secondary school to discuss how the transition for the child will take place to ensure a smooth and relaxed change occurs.
