Have your say on the new special educational needs and disabilities vision for Lincolnshire

13 February 2018

Lincolnshire County Council, partners and schools are encouraging parents, carers and other interested residents to complete the online survey on proposals to develop a new model for special education.

As well as the online survey, individual consultations are also taking place in schools and through the Lincolnshire Parent Carer Forum as well as public meetings set up by the county council.

Councillor Mrs Patricia Bradwell, Executive Councillor for Children’s Services said: “These significant changes would bring accessible inclusive education in all communities, minimal travel, enhanced provision and increased number of school places. We want all children to be able to access high quality education and achieve their potential, as near to their family and local community as possible.”

“But it’s important we hear from parents, carers, children and interested residents about our proposals as they are at the heart of SEND provision. Don’t forget to have your say by completing the survey online and check out details of other consultation events in the county.”

All interested parties are being urged to comment through the survey on the council’s website or people can make their comments and enquiries by emailing SENDCommunities@lincolnshire.gov.uk

New proposals will address many of the challenges pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and their families face when trying to access the right education, in the right place at the right time.

No child will be forced to change school if parents don’t want them to. However, with only 30% of pupils with SEND currently attending their nearest school, under the new proposals children will have the chance to attend a school in their local community if that is possible

Full details can be found at www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/SENDcommunities and the consultation runs until 14 March 2018.
