Coronavirus: Information and advice for parents / carers of children with SEND

This page is being regularly updated with the latest information and advice for parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs or a disability (SEND) during the pandemic.

Returning to school

Your child may have returned to school, or you may be preparing for your child to return to school. We understand that you may feel anxious about this – please be assured that we are working closely with schools across Birmingham to help make the transition as smooth as possible.

If you have any queries or concerns, contact the Parent Link Contact Line on 0121 303 8461.

The Birmingham SEND Youth Forum shared their thoughts about returning to school with us. You can see the video they recorded about the return to school here.
