SEND Information Report and Local Offer

What is the SEND Information Report?


The School SEND Information Report is a document produced by school and reviewed annually by the SENDCo with other stakeholders.  It is co-produced with parents, staff (including the Headteacher), the SEND Governor and children's views are also taken into account. This collaborative document provides information to questions parents may ask about the school in terms of identifying needs, raising concerns, parental involvement and how the school can support and provide for a child with SEND.  It also includes questions a child with SEND may ask about how they will be supported in their learning and other information they may want to know.


Following changes in education for SEND in September 2014, the SEN Information Report is a government requirement for all schools to do.  The Local Education Authority (Somerset County Council) is also required to produce their own Local Offer for parents, which links to individual schools.  This will provide information on what services are available within Somerset and what support they offer.

Somerset's Graduated Response for SEND


The Somerset’s Graduated Response Tool replaces the Somerset Core Standards. This document was co-produced with stakeholders from education, health, social care, parent/carers and support service teams. 


Somerset’s Graduated Response Tool sets out the barriers to learning that children and young people may have and the strategies and provision that could be in place to support them. The tool has been created to support all users to understand the Graduated Response to Special Educational Needs in the context of current legislation. The document makes it clear ‘what to expect’ in terms of what is provided and is written for parent carers, children and young people, school staff and those who provide services to families.


The tool sets out the provision that is ordinarily available in Somerset schools at both the Universal and Special Educational Needs (SEN) Support levels.


You can find Somerset's Graduated Response Tool here.


At The Federation of Priddy and St. Lawrence's, we have used the Somerset's Graduated Response Tool to inform our own graduated response documentation.
