Local offer

Simon Wright made this Freedom of Information request to Coventry City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Coventry City Council,

As part of the Government Green paper (Support and Aspiration) the government has outlined a new approach to special educational needs and disability. As part of this initiative the government requires all local authorities in England to set out a Local Offer.

The purpose of the Local Offer is to enable parents and young people to see more clearly what services are available to them in their area and how to access them.

Please provide answers to the following questions

1. What is your local authority currently offering for online advice and guidance for Local Offer?

2. What is the name of the person who is leading on the Local Offer within your Local Authority? Please also provide their job title.

Yours faithfully,

Simon Wright

Coventry City Council

Interesting, the council says "Coventry LA currently meets its statutory responsibilities re the availability of information on SEN. The requirements re the Local Offer do not come into force until 1 September 2015" Not spotted anyone else saying this, am collecting progress details of LOs here http://edyourself.org/articles/localoffe...

I have raised the date discrepancy with the named LO lead Marian Simpson today (March 25th) and can confirm that 2015 is a misprint, it should read September 2014.
