School SEN Information
One of the biggest challenges any parent or carer faces comes when having to decide what school their child should attend.
To make this easier, on the Local Offer we have links to the SEN Information for all schools within the Bexley area. On these sites, you will find information about what and how the school supports children with SEN. Each School will have what is called an SEN Information Report which is updated annually so you will always have the most up to date information for that school.
If you want to find the links, please follow the links below:
The Bexley Local Offer Logo
The Logo on this site has been designed soley by a group of young people who have been educated in Bexley and have a range of SEN needs.
Having looked at the site they felt that this logo best represented what the Bexley Local Offer means to them.
Our future plan is to refresh the logo yearly with the design being created by local students who we are here to support.

Quality First Teaching and Special Educational Needs Support Toolkit
The intention of introducing this document is to support Bexley mainstream settings with ensuring a consistent approach when identifying pupils’ barriers to learning and/or special educational needs.
The emphasis of the Bexley Toolkit is to provide a consistent approach to ensure that:
High quality teaching, differentiated for individual pupils, is the first step in responding to pupils who have or may not have SEND.
All school members are routinely providing support and guidance as set out in the SEND Code of Practice 2015.
Pupils’ barriers to learning are identified early, quickly and correct support or intervention are provided.
Schools monitor the impact and effectiveness of support and interventions through the graduated approach.
Parents will know what support they can reasonably expect to be provided.
Children and young people, their parents or carers, will be fully involved in decisions about their support and what they want to achieve.
Support given should be in line with the pupil’s needs and not dependent on diagnosis.
