Local Offer

Local Offer Description

If a student has significant problems that hinder/prevent him/her from learning or benefiting from the normal education or educational facilities provided for the majority of his/her peers (who attend mainstream secondary schools within the LA) then that student has a learning difficulty. N.B. This definition of learning difficulty does not apply to students who have learning problems solely because his/her first language is different from the language in which he/she will receive his/her education.

If the student needs different or additional educational provision to that generally provided for his/her peers (who attend a mainstream secondary school) then that educational provision is deemed 'special educational provision'.
