Nominations are now open!

North East Lincolnshire Council’s Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Award ceremony is back for its third year.

Do you know a child who deserves to be recognised for their accomplishments? A teacher who has been especially supportive? Or attended an activity that has shown you a warm welcome and been inclusive?

The SEND Awards give children and young people a chance to shine.

It is also a chance to recognise the important work of the professionals who work every day to make sure children and young people with SEND are supported to achieve their full potential.

This year we hope to have more nominations than ever before from parents and carers, children and young people and professionals.

To nominate someone, fill in a SEND Award nomination form here. The awards covers 11 categories:

Children and Young people:

  • Community Award
  • Creative Arts Award
  • Sports Award
  • Friendship Award
  • Education and Learning Award
  • Environment Award
  • Student Personality of the Year Award

    Adults and Organisations:
  • Inspiring Teacher Award
  • Education Setting Award
  • Special Recognition Award
  • SEND Friendly Business or Organisation

Following the nomination period, nominations will be shortlisted and winners picked by our local SEND Young People’s Advisory Group (YPAG).

Winners are invited to the Ceremony at Grimsby Town Hall in July to accept their awards.
