Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

SEND at Baguley Hall

Our mission for children with special educational needs and disabilities is the same as for all children – that they achieve their full potential and are successfully prepared for their positive futures in the community. Here at Baguley Hall, we are committed to giving every child a broad and balanced curriculum, with reasonable adjustments provided for every individual need. We work in close partnership with parents and carers to understand every child's unique situation, valuing and trusting their input in all stages of the SEND process.

Manchester's Local Offer

The Local Offer helps children, young people and their parents to understand what services and support they can expect from a range of local agencies. They also host special events, lunches, days out and craft sessions.

One part of the Local Offer is Short Breaks - services for disabled children and young people with Special Educational Needs, rare disorders and chronic medical conditions age 0 - 17 years inclusive. 

A short break can range from an activity which lasts an hour or two through to a few days away from home, and includes day, evening, overnight, weekend and holiday activities. These activities provide a positive experience for the child as well as giving parents and carers a break from their caring duties.
