As part of the Children and Families Act 2013, Local Authorities are required to publish a ‘Local Offer’ which sets out support that is available for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities in the local area.
Our school website has been designed to provide parents with all the information they need. Many areas within this document are discussed in more detail on the website. Where applicable, links to the documents referenced are provided. We hope that you find it helpful.
Newham’s Local Offer is available on the Newham Website, it tells parents how to access services in their area and what to expect from these services. Alongside this, schools are required to publish information about their arrangements for identifying, assessing and making provision for pupils with special educational needs.

The levels of support for children with SEND at Ranelagh:
At Ranelagh, we provide our children with the opportunity to develop important life skills. We do this through our Life Skills Programme aimed at teaching our children new skills that will equip them with the tools needed to deal with the challenges of everyday life. Some of the activities include taking care of themselves and their personal hygiene, following recipes for cooking and working with money in real life contexts through visits to local shops.
We ensure through our programme that the children develop a deeper knowledge and understanding of the world around them and become responsible, independent citizens within their community.
