From September 2014, the new SEN Code of Practice stipulates that every local authority must publish their Local Offer – this must be easily accessible and regularly reviewed. It should signpost where to go for help, and should clarify any questions you have about the services your child may qualify for.
The Local Offer for Kent can be found here.
As a provider of SEN help our offer is based on our SEN policy, and includes the Mainstream Core Offer and our SEN Provision Map.
Additional help and advice can be sought from Kent Parent Partnership Service (KPPS). They provide free, impartial and confidential advice about the options available and the educational issues faced by parents of children with SEN or physical disabilities. They can be reached via:
Helpline: 03000 413 000
