Help the Department of Education understand how things are for you…
Schools should be ‘encouraging’ vulnerable children to attend school but allowing you, as a family, to decide on whether this would be appropriate for you and your child.
Is that what has happened for you or has your child’s school or education setting discouraged attendance?
The Department for Education wants to know if your child’s school or education setting has written to you or contacted you by phone to ask that you keep your child at home, even if they have an EHCP or are classed as vulnerable.
Family Voice Norfolk feeds in to the National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF). The NNPCF is currently in talks with the Department for Education (DfE) about the current situations families are facing.
Please let us know at Family Voice Norfolk if the situation above applies to you. We will anonymise any information you share with us. Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and please forward copies of any letters from school discouraging attendance if you can. Let us know the name of the school or setting in any case. We can assure you that your name will not be linked in any way to our feedback of information.
