All Wirral Local Authority (LA) maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the LA to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible. The four broad ‘areas of need’ are Communication and Interaction; Cognition and Learning; Social, Emotional & Mental Health Difficulties and Sensory & Physical Needs.
What is the Local Offer?
The LA Local Offer: The Children and Families Bill will become enacted in 2014. From this date, Local Authorities and Schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) aged 0 – 25. This is the ‘Local Offer’. The intention of the Local Offer is to improve understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.
You can access the Local Offer at:
This website will provide you with information about what the local authority can offer
