Send Local Offer and Information Report

The Government has asked all Local Authorities in the UK to publish, in one place, information about the services and provision they expect to be available in their area for children and young people from 0 to 25 who have Special Educational Needs and/or a Disability (SEND).

This is known as the Local Offer.

This is Laurel Avenue Community Primary School's Guide to our Local Offer for children and families who have an interest in SEND or SEND provision. If you need any further information then please contact Mrs Stephanie Tew, Special Educational Needs Coordinator, at school.
