Vicky Ford, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Children and Families, has written an open letter to children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), their families and carers and those who work to support them.  

Following the introduction of the new national restrictions on 5th November, this letter provides advice and guidance on several issues, including school attendance, children who are clinically extremely vulnerable, remote education, face coverings in education settings, respite, health services for children and young people with SEND, and the new winter package to provide support for children and young people and their families.
