holding hands

The Department of Education  have just announced that the National Trial to extend the powers of SEND to make non binding recommendations about health and social care aspects of an EHCP has been extended until 31st August 2021.  This is very good news for families and children and we very much hope that the extended trial will lead to permanent powers over the health and social care aspects of an EHCP.

For more information please see the link below to the letter from the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Children and Families, Vicky Ford MP.
