Ordinarily Available Provision

Last updated:

In Buckinghamshire, there is a drive to promote a consistent ethos of inclusivity and supportiveness for individuals with SEN across all schools in the county.

A cornerstone of this ambition is the concept of ‘ordinarily available provision’: the principle that pupils at SEN Support should expect to receive the same core offer of help and intervention irrespective of the school that they attend. This links to the Children and Families Act 2014, Equality Act 2010, Education Act 2011 and the SEND Code of Practice.

Schools, parents/carers and professionals collaborated to produce Buckinghamshire’s Ordinarily Available Provision documentation, which outlines the special educational needs that children and young people may have across the four broad areas, with easy to use provision suggestions for all members of school staff and families alike, as well as strategies for the whole school and quality first teaching.
