SEN Information

As of September 2014, all schools were required to publish details of their school offer, detailing support for pupils with special educational needs and/or a disability to compliment the Lincolnshire County Council Offer. Below are details of the current school offer at Gedney Church End Primary Academy.

Our SENCo

The Acting SENCo at our school is Mrs Denise Parker and she works at Gedney, one day per week. To book an appointment, please speak to Mrs Wood in the office or email senco@gce.keystonemat.org

Telephone: 01406 393392
Email: senco@gce.keystonemat.org

If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the school where an appointment can be made or further advice given.

Do you have a child with special educational needs and/or a disability?

If you do, have you signed up to the Lincolnshire Parent Carer Forum?  LPCF is a Lincolnshire charity aimed at families with children who have special educational needs and led by parents and carers of children with SEND.  They provide free access to a range of support and information for families.  Please find a link below to their latest newsletter which highlights their upcoming ‘Week of SEND’ which will provide a range of activities to children and their families.  If you are not already registered with LPCF, please visit their website to sign up.

Local Connections

Our school is part of a collaborative partnership with 6 local schools and is also part of the South Holland Cluster group where SENCo's meet regularly to offer advice, support and training opportunities.

Complaints

Complaints about SEN provision in our school should be made to the class teacher in the first instance, then the Acting SENCo and finally, the Head Teacher. Further information can be found in the SEN Information Report which can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of this page.
