The academy’s SENCO is Miss G Bell.

The Children and Families Act 2014 aims to improve integrated support for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities across Education, Health and Social Care for 0 – 25 year olds.  The revised SEND Code of Practice (June 2014) means that there will be:-

  • A single system giving support across Education, Health and Social Care
  • A joint commissioning approach across Education, Health and Social Care
  • An Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC Plan) will replace the current SEN Statements and Learning Difficulties Assessments (139a)
  • A personal budget offer will be available for those with an EHC Plan
  • Local Authorities will have to publish clear and transparent ‘SEN&D Local Offer’

The main drivers of the new Reforms are:

  • To improve the outcomes for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and their families
  • To improve the process for accessing services by having clear, single, cohesive pathways
  • To improve the level and transparency of information and support available to families
  • To increase the level of choice and control children, young people and their families have over the services and support they receive

Building Communities of Specialist Provision for Children and Young People with SEND – Adults

In March 2017 the Department for Education (DfE) announced that it expected all local authorities to undertake a strategic review of their High Need Strategy, their provision for pupils with SEND.  A proposed Lincolnshire Strategy has been developed by collaborative working between Lincolnshire County Council, schools, the health service and the Lincolnshire Parent Carer Forum.  This consultation gives parent/carers, schools and pupils opportunities to give their views about the proposed strategy, share any concerns and make suggestions.

All consultation responses will be analysed and fully taken into account as the strategy is developed. There are different ways to contribute to this consultation, including meetings, and these are set out in the information letter.

You are encouraged to complete the questionnaire on this link:

This consultation will be open from Monday 8th January 2018 until Wednesday March 14th 2018. Please refer to the summary information before you respond.  You can also get more detailed information at
