Portsmouth City Council SEN Team
Covid-19 Interim Arrangements – Information for Parents, Schools and Partners
Portsmouth City Council is following the most recent Government advice regarding the current Covid-19 pandemic. This means that we have had to significantly change the way some Portsmouth City Council services are working.
The Government advice about Coronavirus (Covid-19) is that staff should work from home if possible and must adhere to social distancing requirements, therefore the SEN team are working remotely from home. The Team are contactable by email and phone and at this stage all written communications are being sent electronically via secure email or School Secure Environment (SSE), rather than post.
Please try to avoid sending post into the office, if possible, as there are limited opportunities to collect it. Please either email your link worker if you have a specific query, or for general enquiries email email@example.com
In light of the remote working arrangements, it may take us longer than usual to respond to you.
Please see below for some details of how we will continue with our essential work:-
UPDATE! – There have been temporary changes applied to the law with regards to Education Health and Care Plans – A JOINT MINISTERIAL LETTER FROM MINISTERS FORD & WHATELY explaining the changes can be read here.
