Education, schools and colleges (SEND Local Offer)
On Monday 6 July, the Department for Education updated its guidance on temporary changes to special educational needs and disability legislation during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
It has been updated to reflect announcement on 2 July that, unless the evidence changes, they will not be issuing further national notices to modify section 42 of the Children and Families Act 2014.
This means that the reasonable endeavours duty to provide special educational and health provision will come to an end in August and the duty will return to an absolute duty as was the case previously.
You can find more information about how the coronavirus pandemic is affecting things by visiting the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pages on the Local Offer.
