Special Education Needs and Disability - SEND

Local Offer

Please see the Local Offer for really useful information, advice, video's and contact details. 

https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/send-local-offer 

All North Yorkshire maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND.) They are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, whatever their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. The Local Authority has published its Local Offer for parents/carers of children who have Special Educational Needs or a disability (SEND) and all those who support children with additional needs.
