SEND

Our Nursery SENCO is Melissa Robertson. The local offer provides information for children and young people with special educational needs (SEND) and their parents or carers in a single place.

What is a local offer?

In Hull there’s lots of support available to children with disabilities and special educational needs, and their families. You’ll find information about that Local Offer of support here.

Whether it relates to education, health, social care or parental support, and regardless of who’s providing it, we’ll aim to point you in the right direction.

  • The Hull SEND Local Offer

The local offer provides information on what services children, young people and their families can expect from a range of local agencies, including education, health and social care. Knowing what is out there gives you more choice and therefore more control over what support is right for your child.

The local offer provides information on a number of things, including:

  • special educational provision;
  • health provision;
  • social care provision;
  • other educational provision;
  • training provision;
  • travel arrangements for children and young people to schools, colleges and early years education; and
  • preparing for adulthood, including housing, employment and leisure opportunities.
