On Tuesday 11th June 2019, Bedford Borough's new Local Offer Website was launched. The new website can be found using this link :
SEND Code of Practice 2015
This document identifies four areas of need:
Communication and Interaction
Cognition and Learning
Social, Emotional and Mental Health
Sensory and / or Physical Needs
The Code of Practice provides statutory guidance relating to children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
From Early Years through to Year 6, we use the 'Assess, Plan, Do, Review' cycle to meet the needs of pupils with SEND and improve practice through individualised outcome pathways. This includes high quality teaching and provision to meet the needs of the child.
Please find website links and ideas for your child's home learning. Please regularly check the website. New resources and ideas will be added.

I am emailing you all with an update regarding the attached Easter Holiday activities. The SEND family activities are now fully booked up but I am delighted to announce that the online activities are now available to book; We have a range of exciting online programmes on offer including cook-a-long sessions with a private chef (ingredient vouchers provided), bitesize boxing, street dance, drama and arts and crafts. We have also teamed up with Conductive Music to provide 100 FREE places on their highly regarding Music Video game creation course (voucher code attached). Please do share this far and wide so that as many children and young people can access and benefit from these great online sessions (available to all but priority will be given to those on Free School Meals), in particular with any young people you know would love to design and create their own video game.
Our Active holiday club is FREE to all children aged 5-12 on Free School Meals, so far we are only at 50% capacity we want to make sure we support as many children as possible.
