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.

Somerset Parent Carer Forum

Somerset Parent Carer Forum is a parent led organisation, with all the people leading our working having a child or young person between birth to 25 years with additional needs and/or disabilities.

We believe we are stronger together and we want to involve as many parent carers as possible. We invite all parent carers in Somerset, to join us. Somerset Parent Carer Forum

Being a parent carer of a child or young person with additional needs can bring extra situations which are challenging to know how to handle. To help support parent carers navigate these we have created a range of workshops based on the subjects you have told us would be helpful.

The workshop will have 2 main parts. 

Part 1-will provide information and ideas of things you can try (strategies). 

Part 2 – will give you time to discuss your own circumstances and form a plan of what you can try to help.

Alongside this we will also have a range of information workshops both face to face and online.
