Local Authorities have a duty to publish a Local Offer, setting out in one place information about services available across education, health & social care for children & young people who have special educational needs or disability. The requirements can be found in The SEND Code of Practice: 0 - 25 years (Chapter 4) and the SEND (Local Offer) Regulations Part 4.
In Slough, the Local Offer has been co-produced with parents and a multi-agency steering group. Some feedback from young people was also included. A Berkshire-wide steering group, which included representatives from the 6 Local Authorities and the Parent Carer Forums, met to develop a common understanding of the requirements and to coordinate the format of information to enhance the sharing of information across borders.
We are required to publish a report of the consultation undertaken & feedback received on the Local Offer during the year - see SEND Code of Practice sections 4.21 - 4.25. This report has been produced in a ‘you said - we did' format and is available in the 'Downloads' section.
