The Children and Families Bill passed through Parliament has introduced new legislation in September 2014.
The Government’s aim is to provide better outcomes for children and young people with additional needs and disabilities and to improve the experience of parents/carers when securing support for their children.
As part of the legislation Local Authorities are required to publish a Local Offer www.lancashire.gov.uk/SEND, which will show the special educational provision and support available to disabled children, young people and their families.
Since the beginning of COVID-19 impacting the education of our pupils, school is also required to publish the SEND special arrangements that are in place regarding COVID-19
Ridgewood Community High School also publishes an Information Report that gives further details on the arrangements in place to meet needs around SEND in Ridgewood; and around elements such as the provisions in place, the curriculum and the school environment.
