Eaton Primary School’s Information Report 2018-19
Special Educational Needs
Schools must publish an SEN Policy on their websites. This does not need to be a separate document to the Information Report.
Schools have a duty to publish a special educational needs (SEN) information report on their website. The Information Report details the implementation of our SEN policy This is a requirement set out in the SEND Code of Practice (linked to above, see paragraph 6.2, 6.79 and the introduction to chapter 6 on page 91).
The information published in the report should be updated annually and any changes to the information occurring during the year should be updated as soon as possible. This is set out in paragraph 6.79 of the SEND Code of Practice. We publish our Information Report at the end of each academic year, reporting on how the policy was implemented.
Full governing board must approve the report
The SEN information report must be approved by the full governing board.
We welcome any comments and suggestions regarding our Special Educational Needs information. The Special Educational Needs and Disability leader is:

The Local Offer
The Norfolk Local Offer is published as part of the SEND reforms under the Children and Families Bill.
It explains how the local authority will work with parents, local schools and colleges, as well as other services such as Health and Wellbeing Boards. This will encourage a more joined-up process when delivering services for children and young people with SEND and should make the system less stressful for families. It aims to give parents more information about the services and expertise available locally, and increasing their choice. It should also;
- Give you information about education, health and care services.
- Give you information about leisure activities and support groups.
- Hold all the information in one place.
- Be clear, comprehensive and accessible.
- Make service provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations.
- Be developed and reviewed with service providers and service users.
