Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)
Miss Glover is our Senco (Special Needs Co-ordinator)
When the Children and Families Bill became enacted in 2014, local authorities were required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with special educational needs. This is called the Local Offer. The intention of the local offer is to improve choice and transparency for our families. It is also an important resource for professionals in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.
A further key role for the local offer is to inform the joint commissioning for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities by setting out in a single place what is available locally. The Local Authority must work together with children and young people, parents and carers and with local services, including the voluntary and community sector, to develop their offer and keep it under review. This is called co-production.

At Blueberry Park Primary we strive to support all pupils to enable them to achieve at school. In order to do this many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey. Quality teaching is vital; however, for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets.
The link below describes our School Offer. It should, however, be noted that this document does not provide an exhaustive or definitive list of the skills, resources and techniques we employ, as we are constantly reviewing what we provide, which leads to continuous development and modification of our provision.
We work hard to ensure that parents have access to all of the information regarding our provision for pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. Please click on the links below for further information. Alternatively, paper copies can be obtained from the school office. Furthermore, a member of staff will be more than happy to talk you through any of our documentation privately, and we are also able to provide copies of documentation in any language. Our languages teacher, Madame Burkot, is also available every Monday and Tuesday for any parents who wish to speak to her in Polish, Czech or French.
LIVERPOOL AUTISM TRAINING TEAM
The Liverpool Autism Training Team is part of Liverpool city council children's service. They offer training, advice and support to families/carers of a child/young person aged 0-19 years who are awaiting an assessment of Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or who have received a diagnosis. They have a long history of working together with parent support groups as well as other support services; this enables them to signpost parents and carers to
other sources of help and support. For more details of training and support please click on the link below:
