Our School SEND Information Report
The Local Offer - What does it mean for schools?
What is the Kirklees Local Offer?
The Local Offer has been developed as part of the new Children and Families Act. It aims to provide information on education, health and social care provision available for disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs, in a way that can be accessed quickly and easily.
Who is producing the Local Offer?
Kirklees Council is working with parents, carers, young people, schools, colleges, early years providers and health services to produce the Local Offer.
What information do schools provide?
Schools have a duty to provide information about special educational needs that is accessible to pupils, parents and carers. We need to make sure this information is kept up to date.
Where can I find the Local Offer?
The Kirklees Local Offer can be found at www.kirkleeslocaloffer.org.uk
This is a work in progress. Kirklees Council and partners are working hard to create a Local Offer that includes links to all relevant information that Kirklees residents would find useful. If you have any suggestions for improvements or ideas about what might help you, contact CSA.Admin@kirklees.gov.uk
Who can I contact for further information ?
Your first point of contact would be your child’s class teacher to share any concerns.
Your could also arrange to meet Miss Neul the SENCO.
As well as support being available with school there are other local support services who provide information and advice for parents and families.
