Coventry SEND Local Offer

In reference to the SEND reforms all local authorities need to produce a local offer as highlighted in the Code of Practice, it states
“Local authorities must publish a Local Offer, setting out in one place information about provision they expect to be available across education, health and social care for children and young people in their area who have SEN or are disabled, including those who do not have Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans. In setting out what they ‘expect to be available’, local authorities should include provision which they believe will actually be available. ”   (Code of Practice 2014)
