A tri-borough Education, Health and Care Local Offer for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN)

The three London Boroughs of Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster are preparing for the introduction of the Children and Families Bill. A key duty on Local Authorities and schools will be the publication of a Local Offer which sets out information about the education, health and care provision that parents can expect. This will describe what provision is available and how it can be accessed.

The Local Offer must include information about:

· Education, health and social care provision for children and young people with SEN aged 0 to 25 years;
Details of how parents and young people can request an assessment for an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan and how this assessment will be carried out;
Other educational provision such as sports or arts provision, leisure activities and apprenticeships, traineeships and supported internships;

· Arrangements for supporting travel to and from schools, post-16 institutions and early years providers;
Sources of information, advice and support in the local authority's area relating to SEN including forums for parents and carers, and support groups, and arrangements for resolving disagreements;
· Childcare providers, including suitable provision for disabled children and those with SEN;

  We would like parents to feel confident in the Local Offer and want to know what they think is important. Which of the following are most important to you? (Please choose up to three).
