Trafford’s local offer makes it easier for families to find out about the support that is available for children and young people with SEN or who are disabled. The intention is to improve choice and transparency for families. All schools and academies in Trafford are expected to identify and support pupils with special educational needs to make the best possible progress. Schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible and wherever possible, the needs of pupils with a Special Educational Need are met in a mainstream setting, where families want this to happen. Trafford’s Graduated Approach document provides guidance on what should usually be available within school’s resources.
