England: New and Updated Government Covid-19 Guidance

18 August 2020

It can sometimes be difficult to keep up with all of the latest guidance that the Government publishes. We will be posting the updates we think will be most relevant to families with children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities and their supporters.

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.

Starting his week, we will collect and post information about 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 ten days:
