Letter for families of children of “vulnerable” students 29th April
I hope you and your family are well and healthy. You will know that school remains closed,
except for students classed as vulnerable. I would like to take this opportunity to keep you
updated with the current information from the Department for Education in relation to these
students. In a recent email, the Minister for Education, Gavin Williamson gave further
guidance in relation to families of students who are in receipt of an Education, Health and
Care Plan or a social worker. He states there is an expectation for these children to attend
school or a regular basis, although he appreciates this may not be possible or the best
course of action for many families.
