Leeds Local Offer
The Leeds Local Offer website (www.leedslocaloffer.org.uk) is for those 0-25 with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and has been operational since September 2014. The Leeds Local Offer is a single place where young people with SEND, their parents and carers and professionals can find out about services that are available in Leeds. It is not just a directory of services, it is the unique place where young people with SEND and their families can provide suggestions for improving services and for new services they need.
SEND Concerns and Complaints
We aim to provide a quality and well-rounded education for all of the children at St. Joseph's, including those with SEND. We do recognise though, that at times parents may have concerns regarding the provision their child receives.
If you have any concerns then we would encourage parents to speak to either the class teacher, our SENDCO (Mrs Munnelly) or any other member of senior leadership. We would then work together to resolve any issues.
If you did not feel your concerns were being listened to, then the complaints policy and procedure can be followed. Should you require further guidance then parents can also contact SENDIASS, (the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information Advice and Support Services (SENDIASS) in Leeds), who can provide free, impartial and confidential advice to families.
