Children with special educational needs or disabilities

Every Local Authority in England is required to publish information about the services in their area for children and young people from birth to 25 with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). It also has to include services outside of the area which children from their area may use. This is known as the “Local Offer”. It has been required since September 2014.

The Local Offer has two main purposes:

  • to provide clear, comprehensive and accessible information about the support and opportunities that are available
  • to make provision more responsive to local needs.

The Local Offer will put all the information about education, health and care services, voluntary agencies, leisure activities and support groups in one place.

Slough SEND Local Offer can be found on the Slough Information and Service Guide website - SEND Local Offer pages. It has been developed in partnership with parents, carers, children and young people and other agencies in Slough.
