The graduated approach briefings are aimed at SENDCos and other staff members of educational settings, who support the needs of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Lincolnshire. The briefings focus on removing barriers to learning and implementing effective special educational provision by embedding a robust graduated approach across educational settings.

Future meetings

Graduated approach briefings occur regularly throughout the year, starting in October.  The bulk of these will be delivered by MS Teams. However, we are providing the opportunity for you to choose one of the April and May briefings face to face if you would prefer this, subject to spaces. The content for the F2F briefings will be the same for each session taking place on 25 or 30 April 2024. The only difference will be the venue. In addition, there will be identical content delivered in an MS Teams meeting on 1 May 2024, for anyone who cannot attend a F2F briefing.

Book onto our MS Teams or face to face meetings here

At the same time, please can you complete our annual survey to tell us your views and what you would like to include in the briefings for the next academic year. Whilst the dates and delivery methods have now been set, we are still interested in your views on content.

Please note that the graduated approach briefings, or sections of them, will be recorded for use on the council’s professionals’ website. By booking a place and attending the briefings, it is assumed that you agree to this.  If you do not wish to be recorded, you have the option of watching the recordings later.
