SEND Accessability Plan
SEND – Local Offer
All North Yorkshire maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND.) They are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, whatever their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. The Local Authority publishes its Local Offer which provides information for children and young people with special educational needs (SEND) and their parents or carers in a single place.
Special Educational Needs and Disability Information, Advice and Support Service
The SENDIASS co-ordinator for our area is Jane Clark. She is available to offer advice, listen to worries or concerns, offer home visits, attend review meetings or support transition to a new school. Her advice is impartial and she can be contacted on 01609 536198
