School SEN policies and information reports

Every local authority maintained schools and academy school is legally required to publish an SEN Policy and SEN Information Report. These should be freely available to download from the school's website. 

An SEN Policy should tell you about arrangements and responsibilities the school has for meeting the needs of children and young people with SEND. This should include information on legal obligations and guidelines, the school's aims, objectives and vision, the roles and responsibilities of staff and arrangements for monitoring and evaluation. 

The SEN Information Report should tell you about how the SEN Policy is applied in practice. You should expect to see information on how the school identifies and monitors for SEND, how they support children and young people identified with SEND, their ambitions for children and young people with SEND and how they will achieve them. 

We have worked with local schools to makes sure their SEN Policies and SEN Information Reports are available on the Local Offer. To download these for any school, naviagate to their record on the Local Offer directory and click on the download link on the right-hand side.
