Study into lockdown impact on SEND learners

A study from the University of Sussex, School of Education and Social Work, has examined the perspectives of parents of children with SEND and their experiences of the return to school in September 2020 and home-learning during the latest lockdown. 

Whilst the report highlights many positives in the approaches taken by settings to reintegrate pupils in September, and the significant improvements in home learning provision, 54% of parents still fear that their children will be further behind their non-SEND peers.

However, the changes in schooling because of lockdowns were not always seen as having a negative impact.
