Education Department - COVID-19 update

Whilst Lockdown restrictions are relaxed, you may continue to find many of us continuing to work remotely. In doing so, we aim to continue to facilitate virtual face-to-face meetings where required. 

There are no longer any amendments to SEN regulations. ALL legal requirements for SEN children are enforceable; this includes Local Authorities accepting EHC needs assessments and providing provision in accordance with an EHC plan (to name a few).

SEN tribunals remain via Video, and there is a move to make this a default position. You will be provided with guidance on how to attend a hearing by video link. 

We will continue to update you if anything changes.
