SEND Report and Local Offer
Broomfield South SILC is an all age, generic 2 -19 maintained special school catering for children with a wide range of needs; profound, multiple and complex conditions, autistic spectrum conditions and severe learning difficulties. Over 40% of our pupils have a diagnosis of autism. We have a primary partnership for high functioning autistic pupils at Windmill and Low Road Music Federation and a secondary partnership at Rodillian Academy.
Every pupil has an ‘Education Health and Care Plan’(EHCP). These are reviewed annually. Existing statements are in the process of being converted to Education Health and Care Plans. In addition, pupils are assessed regularly and their progress is closely tracked. Pupils are assessed against their own prior learning. Targets are formally reviewed and re-set accordingly and are shared with parents and carers.
The school works closely with other professionals including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, nursing staff, doctors, teachers of the deaf, teachers of the visually impaired, educational psychologists, mental health workers and social workers to support pupils’ needs.

Leeds has a legal obligation to publish our SEND Local Offer; setting out the support available for local children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
Local authorities must publish a Local Offer, setting out in one place information about provision they expect to be available across education, health and social care for children and young people in their area with special educational needs and disabilities, including those who do not have Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans. In setting out what they ‘expect to be available’.
The purpose of the Local Offer is
· to provide clear, comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date information about the available provision and how to access it, and
· to make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving disabled children and those with SEND and their parents, and service providers in its development and review.
Full details of our legal obligations can be found in the SEND Code of Practice.
