What is the Local Offer?
The Local Offer is a Local Authority’s publication of all the 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.
It has two key purposes:
- To provide clear, comprehensive, accessible and up to date information about the available provision and how to access it
- To make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving disabled children and those with SEN and their parents, and disabled young people and those with SEN, and service providers in its development and review.
Medway Council Local offerWe want children with special educational needs to be able to get their health, social care and educational needs met in their own community. Medway’s Local Offer gives you greater control over how your children are supported.
What We Do
There are a variety of ways in which St Michael’s is able to support SEND students to reach their full potential.
- Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator is Mrs Cox.
- Our Governor with responsibility for SEND is Mrs Greatorex.
At St Michael’s RC Primary School we welcome everybody into our community. We believe that our community should reflect God’s wish that every child is welcomed and should be provided with the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential. Every student at St. Michael’s RC Primary has the opportunity to follow all National Curriculum subjects as well as following an appropriate GCSE curriculum pathway. We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND students. This may include after school interventions, short-term intervention learning or other learning interventions developed on an individual needs basis. We have good attendance at St Michael’s as students want to come to school to experience our high quality learning environment.
If your child has a disability and you would like to know more about what we offer at St. Michael’s please contact us.
