The Local Offer is essentially the provision available for young people with SEND (Special Education Needs / Disabilities). This requirement is laid out by the Children’s and Families Bill 2014 and the SEND Code of Practice January 2015.


What is the Local Offer? 
The Local Offer is essentially the provision available for young people with SEND. This requirement is laid out by the Children’s and Families Bill 2014 and the SEND Code of Practice January 2015.    The Local Offer was first introduced in The Green Paper [March 2011] as a local offer of all services available to support disabled children and children with SEN and their families. This easy to understand information will set out what is normally available in schools to help children with lower level SEN as well as the options available to support families who need additional help to care for a child.


The Local Authority will produce a Local Offer for Northumberland and all schools will produce one for their establishment.

The Local Authority Northumberland County Council Local Offer has two key purposes:

  • To provide clear, comprehensive and accessible information about the support and opportunities that are available/
  • To make provision more responsive to local need and aspirations by directly involving young people with SEND, parents and carers and service providers in its development and review.
