England: New and Updated Government Covid-19 Guidance

02 September 2020

Letter writing

Since the start of the epidemic the Government has produced a significant amount of guidance for schools, social services and the NHS. This is sometimes updated and we know that it has been difficult for many parents to keep up with all the changes and know what the government expects to be happening for their children.

This is our weekly post on new guidance and updates that we think will be the most relevant to families with children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities and their supporters.

So, here’s our selection from the last seven days:

Protective measures for holiday or after-school clubs and other out-of-school settings for children during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak
