"Lyme Community Primary School is a vibrant, welcoming community with inclusive principles at the heart of all they do. Staff describe inclusion as the life-blood of the school which runs through everything; their values and ethos permeate all aspects of school life".
Inclusion Quality Mark Assessment Report : July 2019 

At Lyme Community Primary School we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve at school. In order to do this many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey. Quality teaching is vital; however for some children there are occasions when further positive support may be needed to help them to achieve their targets.

The Local Offer

The Children and Families Bill which came into force in 2014 requires Local Authorities to publish and keep under review information from services that expect to be available for children and young people with SEND aged 0-25, this is known as “The Local Offer”. The purpose of the local offer is to enable parents and young people to see more clearly what services are available in their area and how to access them. The offer will include provision from birth to 25, across education, health and social care.  This involves working with children and young people, parents and carers, and local services including schools, colleges, health and social care agencies.

What will it do? 

St Helens Framework will allow the local offer to provide parents / carers with the information about how to access services in their local area, and what they can expect from those services.  With regard to Education, it will let parents / carers of young people know how schools and colleges will support them and what they can expect across the local setting.

On September 1st 2014, a revised Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice was introduced.  The reforms aim to implement a 
new approach which seeks to join up help across education, health and care, from birth to 25.  Access to this document can be found at:
