What is the Local Offer?
It provides information and support available for families with children and young people ages 0-25 years with special educational needs and/or disabilities.
Wakefield Early Support, Advice ,Information and Liaison (WESAIL) provides a free, confidential and impartial service – which means we do not take sides and try to ensure everyone is given opportunities to express their views and feel listened to.
The aim of the WESAIL service is to support children, young people, their parents, carers and families by providing information to navigate systems and processes so that they can play an active role in decision making about matters relating to their or their children’s health, education, social care to support and empower them in meeting their child’s needs and promoting self-advocacy.
WESAIL is also responsible for updating the Local Offer and engaging with children, young people, families and stakeholders in its ongoing development and review. The aim of the local Offer is to help people easily find information about the services, activities and support available in the local area for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and /or Disabilities and their families.

At Towngate Primary Academy we provide teaching and learning which enables all children to gain access to a broad, balanced and appropriately differentiated curriculum. We strongly believe in the role of Quality First Teaching and Curriculum Entitlement for all children.
Our aim is to ensure all children are supported in order that they may work confidently towards reaching their full potential. The Principles of the SEND Code of Practice 2014 set out the following guidance:
At Towngate we pay close regard to the three key principles of inclusive education:
Central to everything we do is around teaching pupils core values, which we share with staff, children and the wider community. Through our understanding of the ‘core four’: compassion, ownership, resilience and excellence, we foster a holistic approach to the teaching of our pupils to develop a positive ‘can do’ approach to learning.
Children are supported in their journey to independence through carefully planned activities and support from the appropriate professionals.
