Samlesbury Local Offer
As part of the National SEND (Special Education Needs and Disability) Reforms of 2014, schools have been asked to produce a Local Offer. This guide is published as a reference for new and existing school parents.
SEND Support & Information
The Local Offer is a collection of information provided by the Local Authority about the facilities and agencies available for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities. It is intended to provide parents with more information about the places where they can find support for their children and young people with SEND. It also serves to enable agencies to work together through signposting parents to different types of support. You can find Lancashire's Local Offer by clicking here.
FIND (Family Information Network Directory) provides a directory of local and national services including voluntary organisations and support groups as well as producing four newsletters each year.
