Children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (Local Offer)
Oldham’s Local Offer is an online resource that details services, support and guidance available to children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) aged 0-25 and their families.
In October 2017, Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) conducted a joint inspection to judge Oldham's effectiveness in implementing the disability and special educational needs (SEN) reforms as set out in the Children and Families Act 2014. The resulting report can be found here, together with Oldham's Written Statement of Action and the 'fit for purpose' response from Ofsted/CQC..
Oldham SEND Information Advice and Support (IAS) Service offers free, impartial and confidential advice, information and support to parents and carers about special educational needs.
