Plymouth Local Offer
The Plymouth Local Offer website provides information for families and children with special educational needs or disabilities all in one place. This will help you to see which services you can potentially receive and access from local agencies. The Plymouth Local Offer provides information for children and young people from birth to twenty five years old.
Local offer update
The Local Offer has been updated to include a COVID-19 section. Here you will find information for families and links to key national and community information.
The "Dyslexia Best Practice Guidance" information has been put together after collaboration and consultation between Plymouth City Council and local schools. This guidance offers information about how dyslexia is assessed, strategies teachers and parents can use to support children with dyslexia and a parental letter template for parents who wish to contact the school about their child's dyslexia.
