Local Offer

The Local Offer includes information about what each provider can ‘offer’ to children and young people with a Special Education Need and/or Disability. All Local Offer information is available on The Local offer section of Buckinghamshire Family Information Service website. There is an online template specifically for Early Years providers, as well as other services, to complete your Local Offer details.

You will need to sign in to the BFIS portal when you complete the online template.

To help you with this task you may wish to use this Word document template 

Complete your information on the template and SAVE a copy! Then use this information to copy and paste onto the online template when you log on to your account.

To support you with the information you may include in your Local Offer we have produced four Early Years Local Offer examples. Please feel free to use and personalise to match your setting.
