Specialist Education Provision

*Click Here* to see the updated EHCP information during COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

If your child has an additional need, it can help the local authority to know that your child may need further support when they are in school. A health professional who is supporting your family can let the local authority know about your child's needs from an early age.

The Special educational needs and disability (SEND) Local Offer site offers a wide range of advice and support for families. The SEND Local Offer has two main purposes:

  • To provide clear, comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date information about available provision and how to access it
  • To make provision responsive to local needs and aspirations. We do this by directly involving children and young people with SEND, their parents, and the professionals who work with them, in the development and review of the SEND Local Offer   

Things You Can Do to Help

If you feel your child has additional needs, it is very important to communicate with your child’s school. You and your child should be involved with decisions that are being made about potential support. To learn more about what you can do if you have concerns about your child’s progress, visit the SEND Local Offer website pages for parents.

  • Children with significant physical or mental difficulties are eligible for short breaks. Short breaks provide a family with a break from their caring responsibilities. To find out more about short breaks including who is eligible, how to access short breaks, and details of short breaks available in Norfolk *Download the guide below*

    Short breaks are provided in a number of ways and will only be offered following assessment. Your child will need to be aged 5 or above to be able to receive a short break. Short breaks can be for a few hours, a day, overnight or a weekend. A Resource Allocation System (RAS) assessment is used by the social work team to determine an individual budget for each child to access short breaks.
