Guidance for educational settings in Stockport.
The guidance states that the Children and Families act 2014 places a statutory duty on local authorities to publish a local offer setting out in one place information about provision they expect to be available across education health and social care for children and young people in their area who have SEN or are disabled, including those who do not have Education, Health and care (EHC) plans.
In setting out what they expect to be available local authorities should include provision which they believe will actually be available. Amongst the questions in the draft guidance, reference is made to an opportunity to involve Governing Bodies in the process. With this in mind it would be helpful if Governor colleagues could indicate whether they feel a Q and A session/s would be helpful in gaining a better understanding of the offer and what Governors need to know.
