Sutton’s Local Offer

Published: Wednesday, 29th July 2015

“... the recent stock take of Local Offers undertaken on behalf of the Department ... found that the Sutton Local Offer is one of only a handful of local offers which include all the areas of information that are a 'must' in the Code. This is a considerable achievement.”

Sutton’s Local Offer was produced by working together with children and young people, parents and carers and with local services, including the voluntary sector. It is under constant review and development and all feedback on it and suggestions for further development are welcomed!

The website has been reviewed by the Department for Education (DfE) since its launch and Jean Haigh, our DfE Advisor said:

“... the recent stock take of Local Offers undertaken on behalf of the Department ... found that the Sutton Local Offer is one of only a handful of local offers which include all the areas of information that are a 'must' in the Code. This is a considerable achievement.”

This ranks Sutton's Local Offer as being in the top 5 in the country! Following this feedback and other work that has been put in place by SEN Services, the DfE have approached Sutton to be part of an upcoming project, relating to the new Education, Health and Care Plan process.

We are all very pleased with the feedback so far and would like to receive yours too!

If you would like any further information, have any suggestions to make or if you know of a service that you think should be on the Local Offer, please email localoffer@sutton.gov.uk  I look forward to hearing from you.
