Public consultation meetings on special education review

22 February 2018

Lincolnshire County Council is hosting three public meetings in the county in the next few weeks on proposals to develop a new model for special education.

The proposed strategy and model will be outlined by representatives from the county council and local special school teachers. Local residents will have the opportunity to ask questions and comment on the proposals at the following events:

  • Boston - Monday, 26 February - The Supreme Inn, Bicker Bar, Bicker, Boston PE20 3AN, 6.00-7.30pm
  • Sleaford - Tuesday 27 February - New Life Conference Centre, 25 Mareham Lane, Sleaford NG34 7JP, 6.00-7.30pm
  • Lincoln - Monday 5 March - The Myle Cross Centre, Macauley Drive, Lincoln LN2 4EL, 5.30-7.00pm

Councillor Mrs Patricia Bradwell, Executive Councillor for Children’s Services said: “It’s vital that we hear your views about our proposals as many of you will be at the heart of SEND provision. Don’t forget to have your say by completing the online survey and go along to one of the consultation events in the county.”

“This review is about bringing 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.”

Consultations have also been taking place with individual schools and through the Lincolnshire Parent Carer Forum. In addition, parents, carers, children and young people and other interested residents are being encouraged to complete the online survey on proposals to develop a new model for special education at

Alternatively, people can make their comments and enquiries by emailing

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 and the consultation runs until 14 March 2018.
