The Ordinarily Available Guidance sets out the
description of the provision that should be ordinarily available
for pupils in education settings in Hammersmith & Fulham.
The Profile of Need is designed to be used only as a guide for the child/young person to provide a general indication of the level of provision that may be required.
This guidance will support a shared understanding across parents/carers, education settings and other EHC partners on the expectations of what provision should be made available for most children and young people with SEND.
The SEND sufficiency review is a key document
to enable the delivery of our vision for children and young people
across Hammersmith & Fulham. Our ambition is to work together
to support children, young people, and their families at the
earliest opportunity from universal services through to targeted
and specialist support where necessary.
To achieve this, we need to review our local SEND provision so it aligns with our SEND strategy and ensure that we can meet needs of children and young people - at the right time and in the right place.
