Local offer Sept 2019- A pupil has special educational needs if he or she has learning needs that require special educational provision to be made. A pupil has a learning difficulty if he or she has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of pupils of the same age or has a disability which prevents or hinders the pupil from making use of educational facilities of a kind provided for pupils of the same age in other schools within the local authority.
All staff at Mount Carmel RC High have a responsibility to work together with parents/carers and pupils to develop inclusive practices that will overcome the barriers to learning.

FIND – (Family Information Network Directory)
The FIND database includes information about disabled children and young people up to 25 years old in Lancashire.
Families are invited to submit details about their disabled child or young person to the database, which is used to develop an overview of the needs of disabled children across the county to assist with planning services.
The FIND service is strictly confidential – no individual information about any children or their families is shared with anyone.
Every family recorded on the FIND database receives a quarterly newsletter free of charge to help them keep informed about services and support which may be relevant.

POET Survey – Lancashire County Council
Help Lancashire County Council improve services for children and young people with additional needs.
The SEND Service supports children who receive extra help at home, nursery, school or college. The extra help the child receives could be for support with reading, writing or language, often arranged by a special education needs co-ordinator (SENCo). Or it could be for more complex additional needs delivered through an education health and care (EHC) plan.
We want to know about your experiences of this support. The Personal Outcomes Evaluation Toolkit (POET) survey is being carried out by the charity In-Control. It only takes 15 minutes and will have a huge impact on the way services are shaped and delivered across Lancashire.
If you are a parent, carer, professional or young person, you can complete the survey using the one of the links below
