Special Educational Needs and Disability
Our SENDCO is: Mrs. R. Hyde (email@example.com)
At Little Hoole Primary School we strive to provide quality education which is inclusive for all. All children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to:
• Achieve their best;
• Become confident individuals living fulfilling lives; and
• Make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training.
(Code of Practice 2014)
At Little Hoole we endeavour to identify the needs of children early, to work with parents and put the correct support in place. This sometimes means working closely with other agencies to plan the provision which is best suited to our children and their needs.
According to the Code of Practice 2014 on the Identification and Assessment of Special Educational Needs:
“A child has Special Educational Needs if he or she has a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her."
a. Has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age.
b. Has a disability which either prevents or hinders the child from making use of educational facilities of a kind provided for children of the same age in schools within the area of the local education authority.
c. Is under compulsory school age and falls within the definition at (a) or (b) above or would do if special education provision was not made for the child.

This Local offer was compiled after schools and agencies compiled details of the facilities that they offer to the children and young people with SEND in a SEN report. The information is intended to provide parents with more information about the places where they can find support for their children and young people with SEND. It also serves to enable agencies to work together through signposting parents to different types of support.
