Proposed SEN Unit - Have Your Say

SEN units


Lancashire has fewer places in special educational needs (SEN) units compared with other local authorities. In January 2020 the Council approved the development of SEN units in mainstream schools in Lancashire so that more children and young people can get the specialist support they need in a mainstream school closer to their home.


One of the areas in which SEN units are needed for children is Ormskirk / Skelmersdale and this is why we are thinking about whether we should develop an SEN unit for children with social communication and interaction needs in our school.


At the moment this proposal is at a very early stage of development and we would really like to find out what families, staff, governors and other interested members of the local community think about this idea. In order to do this we are starting an informal consultation on 1st October, that will run for 6 weeks until 7th November 2021. More information about the proposal can be found here You can also give your views and ask any questions about this proposal using the same link and filling in the questionnaire. You can get the same information in a booklet if you contact the school office.


We are also arranging a meeting for anyone who would like to find out more about this proposal during the informal consultation period. A member of Lancashire County Council's Inclusion Service will also be at the meeting to answer any questions you may have with me and other members of school staff/governing bodyThis meeting will be held on Tuesday 12th October at 4pm virtually.
