The Local Offer (Leeds) and Pool CE Primary School Offer
Our SEN/DCo in school is Mrs Kay Kingsnorth who can be contacted at school on 0113 2843151
The SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) Local Offer provides information for children, young people and their parents/carers in a single place, helping them to understand what services they and their families can expect from a range of local agencies. This was introduced as part of the Children and Families Bill and became law in 2014.
The aim of the local offer is to improve choice and transparency for families about the services they use. It will also be an important tool for professionals to use; it enables them to understand the full range of services and provision in the local area. By setting this information out in one place, this will also help the joint commissioning of services for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
Here are details of the local offer from Leeds
