LIFT is the Local Inclusion Forum Team led by the Specialist Teaching and Learning Service. It is a forum where SEND professionals and SENCOs meet to consider referrals of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).


I really value my visits to LIFT meetings, not just for support for the cases I bring but also listening to other people's cases and the advice given to them as much of this can be applied to my own school.


There are separate LIFT meetings for schools and Early Years settings.

There are three Early Years LIFT meetings each term.

There are five school-age Sevenoaks LIFT meetings each term.

Additional information about the LIFT process is available below and on KELSI.
