Navigating all the school and county has to offer children with special educational needs and disabilities can be both challenging and confronting in equal measure.
We have compiled a list of relevant information to support you to support your child.
Worcestershire Local Offer for SEND
The local Offer provides information about provision families can expect to be available across education, health and social care for children and young people who have Special Educational Need (SEN) or are disabled, including those who do not have Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans. You can find out about resources, services, support, activities and events here or click on the video explaining the local offer.

The Graduated Response
The SEND Graduated Response guidance is intended to be used as a tool for schools and settings and those partner agencies working with them and has been created in collaboration with SEND professionals, parents/carers and young people. Worcester Children First have also worked with partners, including parent and carers, to produce an Understanding the Graduated Response document, to guide and inform parents, carers and young people. Further information can be found here. Please click the video below to access a short video explaining the Worcestershire Graduated Response.
