Following the Special Needs Jungle survey, that revealed a very mixed picture of support for children and young people with SEND during lockdown, we'd like to find out what was especially good for your family? Did you discover a passion for home educating? Did online speech and language therapy work well? Did your child learn better at home with the help of support from school? Did your school offer "gold standard" support - and what was great about it?

If you didn't get good, or any, support, what might have worked well? What support did you really need during lockdown? If you already home educate, what expertise can you share about what works well for your child?

what worked well in lockdown

Let's help to make a difference!

We want to now focus on the positives to build on what works. We think there is good evidence out there to develop standards for a flexi-schooling solution, that would work well for some children.

We'll share our findings with any organisation that is working on setting up good practice and protocols for blended or future lockdown learning and wants to work with parents to do so. We can't wait to be asked for our views from whoever gets funding to do this work - as parents, we know our children best and we want to be a part of the solution.

So, if you want to tell us what worked for you, please fill in the form below with your thoughts. You can be assured, your details will not be used for any other purpose. You can write as much as you like, or, if you prefer, you can send an email if you'd like to include examples as attachments. These should go to team@sendcommunityalliance.org.uk, entitled "What worked for us" (TIP: If you write a lot, copy it to your clipboard before you send in case of a sending glitch)
