Special Educational Needs and Disability Information

At Cranfield Church of England Academy and Little Cranes Pre-School we believe it is every child’s right to achieve his or her full potential. We aim to raise the aspirations of, and expectations for all pupils with Special Educational Needs.

The Local Authority Offer

The children and Families Bill 2014 places a requirements on local authorities and schools to publish and keep under review information about the services they expect to be available for children and young people with Special educational Needs(SEN) aged 0-25. This is the “Local Offer”.

The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for parents, families and professionals in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.
