In response to queries about EHC Plans and other aspects of the SEND reforms, SEND Family Voices worked with Achieving for Children (AfC), health, social care services and schools to publish detailed guidance, called 'The Golden Binder'.
The intention is for the Golden Binder to provide detailed, accurate and consistent information to families, AfC and other professionals. The complete Golden Binder can be read on-line via the Local Offer website. Printed copies have been distributed to schools, other educational settings and professionals in Richmond and Kingston. Up to date, electronic versions of the forms relating to EHCPs, Annual Review and SEN support should be accessed via the Golden Binder pages on the Local Offer.
Please see Kingston's (AfC) local offer on their website for further information about what you can expect in terms of support for SEND pupils: https://www.afcinfo.org.uk/local_offer/

The new SEND legislation, September 2014, requires schools to publish details of the support available for children and young people with SEND. This is called the local offer.
