Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope you are well and looking forward to the weekend. Thank you for keeping me and the Team Leaders updated about how things are going and especially to those of you who have sent in descriptions or photos of your children’s achievements- we love hearing from you.
I wanted to contact you about the latest update from the Department for Education which concerns EHCP provision. You can read the full update here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/changes-to-the-law-on-education-health-and-care-needs-assessments-and-plans-due-to-coronavirus
I would like to reassure you that we are very aware of the impact that Covid-19 is having on your children and working to do all we can to mitigate this. I am working closely with our Educational Psychologist, Ruth Peck, to plan for how we can address any concerns or gaps, for example with additional intervention and support.
If you require any support at all please, do get in touch. For example, we can provide printed resources for your child if they are struggling with aspects of the online learning and need an alternative. I know many of our students already have these packs but it is available for your child if they do not.
Please say hello to your child from me and from the whole team- we are really missing our students!
