From September 2014 Local Authorities (LA) and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) aged 0-25. This is called the ‘Local Offer’.
The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice for families and will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area

Further information about the Local Offer can be found on the County Durham Families Information Service website.
SEND Information Report
Schools also have to publish a SEND Information Report on their website. This provides details about how we implement our policy for children and young people with SEND.
At Hamsterley Primary School, as a Rights Respecting School, we are committed to the equal inclusion of all pupils in all areas of primary school life. We recognise the diverse and individual needs of all of our pupils and take into account the additional support required by those children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
