Building Communities of Specialist Provision: A Collaborative Strategy

Lincolnshire County Council's Children's Services has been working with all special school head teachers and the Lincolnshire Parent Carer Forum to develop a new vision for special education in Lincolnshire. The Building Communities of Specialist Provision Strategy is the result of this extensive collaboration and we believe it 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 for their children and young people.

Monday 8th January 2018 sees the start of a nine week consultation period where we are inviting all interested parties to comment on the proposed strategy and model. Please find attached the consultation letter which provides an outline of the proposed vision and details of how to contribute to the consultation.

Fairer Funding for Lincolnshire

Caythorpe and Frieston Parish Council are joining other councils in Lincolnshire to campaign for a fairer funding deal for our area.  If councils here received the average funding for the council areas in England the region would benefit from £116 million extra funding for service every year.

This could help pay for new infrastructure and valued council services.  For example £116 million could pay for a bypass scheme, improvements to key roads, fibre broadband for all businesses and more, every year.

Councils in Lincolnshire have seen huge cuts to their Government funding and the cost of providing services is increasing.  Council leaders are meeting with local MPs and government ministers to set out the case strongly for a fair deal for Lincolnshire.

You can help Lincolnshire councils get more money for your local services by contacting your MP and joining the campaign for fair funding at

25/01/18 Update - Attached to this page is further correspondence from Cllr Martin Hill, Leader of Lincolnshire County Council, regarding the Fairer Funding Deal for Lincolnshire campaign.
