Special Educational Needs & Disabilities

Lisa SHi, I am Lisa Solanki and I am the SENCo (Special Educational Needs Coordinator). I have been SENCo since September 2014 but prior to that was a class teacher in Year 1/2.

Our aim at Fishergate School is that every child should be valued for who they are and given the chance to achieve all that they are able to.

Some children will need extra support to do this because they have special  educational needs.  This is my role! I work Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday teaching small groups of children from Early Years to Year 6, over-seeing all Special needs provision in school, meeting other agencies and working with parents.

I can be contacted via the school office or directly by emailing lisa.solanki@york.gov.uk – please be aware that I endeavour to check e-mail on a daily basis but, due to the busy nature of the school day, cannot guarantee to reply on the same day.  If you have an urgent query please contact the school office.

Key school policies relating to SEND can be found on the School Policies page.
