The Background

How did we get to this point?

what is driving the reforms
What is driving the Reforms?
  • Greater focus on Outcomes in SEN:

“We know that the educational achievement for children with SEN is too low and the gap with their peers too wide. This is a hangover of a system, and a society, which did not place enough value on achieving good outcomes for disabled children and children with SEN” Lamb Inquiry.

Greater Parental Involvement and Choice:

“The empirical evidence shows that parental involvement is one of the key factors in securing higher student achievement and sustained school performance.” Harris 2006.

Changing the culture of provision

local offer aims
Local Offer aims
  • To make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving children and young people with SEN, parents and carers, and service providers in its development and review
  • To provide clear, comprehensive and accessible information about the support and opportunities that are available
  • New amendments require LA’s to review provision where issues are raised about the adequacy of the offer
local offer
Local Offer
  • Sets out what families can expect from local services and eligibility criteria and/or thresholds for accessing services
  • What services are available to support those without Education, Health and Care Plans, including what children, young people and parents can expect schools and colleges to provide from their delegated funds
  • What specialist support is available and how to access it and to give details of where parents and young people can go for information, advice and support.
  • Education, health and care provision for children and young people with SEN which should include information about its quality and the destinations/outcomes achieved by those who use it
  • Much greater stress on what works for children and young people

“The culture of schools is still to focus the best teachers on the those children with highest abilities… however we also need the best teachers and better targeted resources to those most in need”

Lamb Inquiry
