    The Bristol Local offer Information for parents and careers of SEN children

    At Bristol Steiner school we believe every child should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential, or some children and
    their families this may mean accessing additional support and services funded by the Local authority.
    The Bristol local offer is an online hub which outlines the entitlements of children and parents and sets outhow families can find, and fund, services for children and young people with SEND.


    Early intervention and support for children who have a specialeducational need or disability can be vital in ensuring they are able to live a full and happy life, early support is known to improve wellbeing for SEN children and their families.

    Information on short term support and services for children and young people without an Educational, Health and Care plan.
