Your Child with SEND: Learning at Home During Lockdown

If you’re a parent/carer of a child with SEND who is struggling or feeling under pressure to help their child complete work set by schools, you can get help and advice here:

In the first instance, contact your child’s teacher at school to ask about how best to complete the work with your child.

The Special Educational Needs and Disability Support Service (SEND SS) staff are also available to help parents/carers, of children with SEND, who would like to talk about helping their child complete the work school has set, or about helping their child to manage the unusual situation of being home all day and not going to school.

If you are not already in touch with a member of SEND SS staff, and you are a parent/carer of a child with SEND, you can access support from SEND SS Service by emailing 

The team have also produced a whole host of helpful guidance to support your child’s learning at home which can be viewed here.

In addition to the above, any Personal Assistants (PAs) that are still supporting or care providers can support families with this aspect too.
