Help for children with SEND during COVID 19
As always, Mrs Hill, our SENCO will be your first port of call to support our SEND pupils, here at Pilling St John’s CE Primary School and Nursery. You will be able to contact her via email or by ringing the school office. Class teachers will also give pupil specific advice on work that your child can complete whilst at home. Staying at home can be more disruptive to the lives and routines of children with special educational needs and disabilities.
No one expects parents to act as teachers or childcare providers, or to provide the activities and feedback that a school or nursery would. We know that you will be doing your absolute best to help and support your children with their learning while they are at home.
If your child has an EHCP then Mrs Hill will already have been in touch to offer a place in school for care during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
The government have produced some guidance for parents and carers on how to help and support their children with SEND continue their education at home during the pandemic. This can be found here.
Some useful apps recommended by the DfE include:
The DfE have also worked with other organisations to create information on ways you can help your children learn at home. See:
