SEN Local Offer
SEND Local Offer
Every local authority has a SEND Local Offer. The purpose of the local offer is to enable parents, carers, children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities to see clearly, from a single and regularly updated source, the services available to local families and how to access them. The offer covers services from birth to 25, across education, health and social care.
The Royal Borough of WIndsor and Maidenhead’s children's services are provided by Achieving for Children. The SEND Local Offer can be found on AfC Info website - Windsor and Maidenhead : SEND Local Offer
Special Educational Needs and Disability Register
All local authorities must have a record or register of children with Special Educational Needs and / or Disabilities (SEND) in their area. If you live in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, we encourage anyone whose family includes a child or young person who has a special educational need or disability to register. Young people over 13 years of age can register independently and can remain registered until their 25th birthday.
Everyone on the register will benefit from:
- information about support, services, activities and events
- information aimed at young people with disabilities
- opportunities to have your say about the services that are important to you
- the knowledge that your anonymous statistical data is helping us to plan and improve services
When you register you have the option to ask for a Disability Awareness Card. Special Educational Needs and Disability Register on the Local Offer website.
