The Local Offer - what does it mean for schools?

What is the Kirklees Local Offer?
The Local Offer has been developed as part of the new Children and Families Act. It aims to provide information on education, health and social care provision available for disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs, in a way that can be accessed quickly and easily.

 The above link relates to the Kirklees Local Offer which gives children and young people aged 0 – 25 years with special educational needs or disabilities, and their families, information about what is available in Kirklees across education, health and social care.

 It covers:

  • SEN support in nurseries and schools
  • Health and Social Care
  • Choices for school leavers
  • Support for parents and carers
  • Income and benefits
  • Things to do where you live 

It is more than a directory of services. It brings everything together in one place

Who is producing the Local Offer?
Kirklees Council is working with parents, carers, young people, schools, colleges, early years providers and health services to produce the Local Offer. 

What information do schools provide?
Schools have a duty to provide information about special educational needs that is accessible to pupils, parents and carers. We need to make sure this information is kept up to date.

Where can I find the Local Offer?
The Kirklees Local Offer can be found at This is a work in progress. Kirklees Council and partners are working hard to create a Local Offer that includes links to all relevant information that Kirklees residents would find useful. If you have any suggestions for improvements or ideas about what might help you, contact
