SEN Trust Southend

On the 1st September 2017, Lancaster School along with the three other special schools in Southend-on-Sea (The St. Christopher School, St Nicholas School and Kingsdown School ) formed a Multi Academy Trust, the SEN Trust Southend. (Company Number: 07973980)

The Trust creates a strong group of special schools which aim to meet the majority of needs of those pupils who require greater support in a special education school.

SEN Trust Southend works closely with the Local Authority and importantly with parents and carers to meet the needs outlined in the Education Health Care Plans.

The four schools retain their own identity and meet the needs of different groups of pupils but work together on training, development, leadership and governance.

Each school has its own Headteacher and local Governing Body but there is also an overall Trust Board with Trustees and Members who have overall responsibility for the quality of education across the four schools.

The Trust has an Executive Headteacher, Mrs Jackie Mullan, who works part-time in this role.
