What is the Local Authority Local Offer?

From September 2014 Local Authorities (LA) and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) aged 0-25. This is called the 'Local Offer'.

The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice for families and will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.

The current link to the LA Local Offer website can be found below:

Our School SEND Information Report

Welcome to our SEND information page. Hopefully you will find everything that you need.

At Belmont CE (Cont.) Primary School including Noah’s Ark Nursery, we recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.

Our school recognises there are particular groups of pupils with SEND who may require additional support, intervention and carefully matched resources.

At Belmont CE (Cont.) Primary School we have appointed a Designated Teacher (Mrs K Harrison-Brown, Head Teacher) for Looked after Children who works closely with the SENDCO (Mrs Stripp) to ensure all teachers in school understand the implications for those children who are looked after and have SEND.

At Belmont CE (Cont.) Primary School including Noah’s Ark Nursery, we ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs make the best possible progress.
