It's back to school!

Its nearly September -  that time for children's return to school and college, or to start preschool or nursery

There has been lots of guidance issued by the government over the past few months and only the keenest of us would have read it all.  We’ve pulled together some useful information about returning to schools and colleges in September for Hertfordshire families whose children have SEND.

The government guidance:

From the beginning of the autumn term, the DfE will expect all pupils, in all year groups, to return to school full-time. A very small number of children and young people, on the advice of their paediatrician or consultant, will need to continue to shield from coronavirus at home.  If this is the case for your child then please ensure that you let your child’s school or college know as they will need to work with you to support their education at home.  Information on what parents and carers need to know about the opening of schools is available.   There is a Department for Education Coronavirus Helpline for queries about this – details below.


Worried about your son or daughter returning to school?

Do raise any concerns with your child’s school/college as soon as possible.  We suggest you do not leave it until the first day of term - this does not give your school/college any time to prepare.
