SEND provision for Children and Young People at Rimrose Hope CE Primary School


All Sefton Local Authority maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the LA to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.


All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.


The four broad ‘areas of need’ are Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and Sensory and Physical Needs.


What is the Local Offer?


As part of the Children's and Families Bill 2014, Local Authorities are required to publish a 'Local Offer' which provides transparency for parents and sets out support that is available for children and young people with SEN in the local area. 


Sefton's Local Offer is available on the Sefton website (see link below) and tells parents how to access services in their area and what to expect from these services. 


Alongside this, schools are required to publish information about their arrangements for identifying, assessing and making provision for pupils with SEN. 


This is the Local Offer for Rimrose Hope CE Primary School. It describes the arrangements we make that are 'additional and different' for pupils with SEN. This information had been produced together with parents, carers and our children and young people and will be reviewed annually. 


The following information outlines the support and provision pupils with SEN can expect at Rimrose Hope CE Primary School.


At Rimrose Hope CE Primary School we believe that all children are entitled to have their needs met and to have access to high quality teaching within the mainstream.


The diagram below illustrates the school's graduated response to children's needs. It shows the standard offer of teaching, learning and care for all pupils, the additional provision which may be needed by some pupils and the specialist provision available to the few children with significant or complex needs,
