Avoid a local lockdown

Do not make visits to other people's homes or gardens. Restrictions on care home visiting are not being relaxed. Those who are shielding should continue to take extra care.

Latest information and advice

 

Providers of early years childcare and education must follow the Equality Act 2010, and meet the additional needs of children and young people who have special educational needs or a disability wherever they can.

They should follow a process called 'assess, plan, do, review'.

This means proactively making adjustments and giving support to avoid children being at a disadvantage, rather than waiting until they are falling behind.

Schools must keep records of individual children’s progress showing how they monitor and evaluate the support.

See the SEND Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years for all the details.
