In September 2014, a new SEND (Special Educational Needs) code of practice became operational. Schools are required to publish information about the services they provide for children with disabilities and Special Educational Needs. This is called the ‘local offer’.
The intention is to offer choice and transparency for families, as well as providing a resource for professionals to detail the range of services and provision locally.
Somerset Graduated Response Tool
Quality first teaching underpins all educational provision. It focuses on inclusive practice and breaks down barriers to learning. For the majority of children, this can be achieved by identifying specific barriers, followed by personalisation and adaptions using strategies as identified in the Somerset Graduated Response Tool.
The Somerset Graduated Response Tool breaks down SEN into four broad areas of need. This targets specific support for teachers to plan and for any interventions to take place. You can learn more about the Somerset Graduated Response at: https://www.somerset.gov.uk/children-families-and-education/the-local-offer/education/what-to-expect-from-education/
