Somerset's Local SEND Offer

Somerset’s SEND Local Offer


Somerset’s SEND Local Offer is our local hub of information and guidance for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), their families and professionals in Somerset. Explore services available to support you and how to access them here.


Somerset Local Offer publish documents like strategies and policies about how they expect children and young people, and people with additional needs, to be supported and involved in their education, health and care. They have guidance about how to find out about and use the services available.


Somerset Local Offer


SEND Strategy for Somerset

They want every child and young person to have the greatest possible opportunity to be the best they can be, to be happy, and have choice and control over their life.

They need to transform their services and work together to make sure that the child or young person is at the centre of everything they do. Our 2016 to 2019 strategy is the partnership response to the challenge to all of us.


The full Somerset SEND Strategy – can be found here.


You can also find their SEND Charter here


Their SEND Strategy and ongoing commissioning of local services must be informed by an up to date understanding of the needs of local children and young people with SEND; this data and analysis can be found in their annual SEND Needs Assessment.


Local Offer Annual Reports

The annual report provides information on how Somerset’s Local Offer has evolved using feedback from its stakeholders, especially parent carers and children and young people.
