SEN Information Report


We aim to be fully inclusive and to respond to the needs of all our SEND pupils. Our philosophy is to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.


This document sets out our policy and information about our practice and provision for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). It adheres to the requirements of the SEND Code of Practice: 0-25 Years (2014) which became effective from September 1st 2014.


The SEND Code of Practice: 0-25 Years 2014 says that (p.15-16):


“A child or young person has SEND if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she:


  • has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or


  • has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions.


For children aged two or more, special educational provision is educational or training provision that is additional to or different from that made generally for other children or young people of the same age by mainstream schools, maintained nursery schools, mainstream post-16 institutions or by relevant early years providers. For a child under two years of age, special educational provision means educational provision of any kind.”


What is the Local Offer?


The LA Local Offer


  • The Children and Families Bill became enacted in 2014. From this date, Local Authorities and schools have been required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the 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 is also an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.


For more details about the Local Offer in Dudley and many services available to families out of school, please consult the Local Authority’s Local Offer website:


Dawley Brook uses the Dudley Local Offer to meet the needs of SEND pupils as determined by school policy, and the provision we are able to meet.

You are able to download our SEND policy from the link below which outlines our provision in greater detail as well as other information you may need including the procedure for concerns or complaints.
