Our Local Offer

What is a local offer?

It's the information which local authorities are required to publish to let parents and carers see what services are available for children with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) within their area and information on how to access them.

In Kent it is called the

SEND information hub

Our provision

At Bradbourne Park we consider all children to be unique. Our environment and resources are planned to give all children a wide range of opportunities to learn and have fun and these can be extended or simplified as appropriate.

Before your child starts with us at Bradbourne Park you will be invited to complete a Registration pack which will give us a detailed picture of your child and their individual needs. We use a range of observations and assessments to track your child’s progress and if we have any concerns we will speak with you and work with you to support your child.

Our focus on how rather than what children are learning helps us to support them all at their individual stages of development - we believe that children learn best when they are given the space and time to explore their environment in their own way.

Where necessary we will assist you and your family to access support from other agencies and give you information about other provisions and support groups.
