Local Offer for Schools

There seems to be some confusion about how schools should show their information to parents about the quality of provision for SEN children. Our local authority is asking us to list generic provision irrespective of the relevance or clarity of this information.  It seems to me that the law is focused on what the local authority communicates and as a school we should help prospective and current parents know what we will be do for their children should they need our support for their needs. These are some good examples:
