DfE Guidance on temporary changes: attendance recording for educational settings whilst closed due to the coronavirus 

We have put together key information and resources for schools to help maintain provision during the COVID-19 situation.

Access  key information and resources to support East Sussex schools during the COVID-19 situation, including any SEND-specific information available - Including updated (28 May) DfE guidance about recording of attendance.

The ISEND service has commissioned a comprehensive resource for parents and carers to explain how special educational needs are identified and met in maintained settings. The resource also promotes the positive outcomes made by children and young people with SEND in maintained early years settings, schools and colleges.
