Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)


This is an unprecedented, uncertain and testing time for all of us due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It is particularly challenging for children and young people with SEND, their families, and those who work tirelessly to support and care for them. 

This is why, over the past week, the Government have made announcements and issued guidance about how together we will meet the needs of children and young people with SEND during this challenging time.

Below is a letter from Vicky Ford MP Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Children and Families, describing the decisions made.





Royal Greenwich Trust School is fully committed to the inclusion of students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) providing that the school is compatible for the child’s age, ability and aptitude and that their attendance is not incompatible with the efficient education of other students in the school and is an efficient use of the Local Authority’s resources.
