Covid-19 Inclusive Education guide
ALLFIE has co-produced this guide with parents of Disabled students and Inclusion Champions Network members, to help Disabled students and their families navigate mainstream education during the Covid-19 pandemic .
ALLFIE has co-produced this guide with help from parents of Disabled students and members from our Inclusion Champions Network, to help Disabled students and their families navigate mainstream education during the Covid-19 pandemic and help respond to inquiries. The outbreak has provided us with a rare opportunity to consider what is important in inclusive education.
During lockdown, there has been a need for more contact between parents, schools and colleges. This has provided us with a real opportunity to develop stronger relationships between children, parents and education staff, with positive outcomes. We hope this guide will support the ongoing good relationships between everyone, with the aim of obtaining a greater understanding of Disabled children and young people’s needs and rights.
We have focused on the major Covid-19 issues, highlighted in ALLFIE’s Survey Report: The Impact of Coronavirus on Disabled People’s Education.
