What is the Local Offer?
As part of the Children and Families Act, a Local Offer is a requirement for schools, colleges and local authorities to publish the provision available to children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) or disabilities.
The Local Offer is a way of letting families know what services are available locally and how they can access them.
Newcastle College’s 2018 Ofsted report acknowledges the strong commitment to meeting the needs of all learners. Our offer will describe how we support the educational needs of local children and young people with disabilities and/or additional learning needs.
Below is a comprehensive overview of our provision, with further links to information on all of our specialist support teams. We have also included a range of questions and answers from both the parent/carer and young person's perspectives based on guidance provided by the local authority.
