COVID-19 & Inclusive Education

ALLFIE is exposing gaps in law & policy during the pandemic.
The Government has introduced statutory guidance requiring schools to provide remote education for those affected by Covid-19. We want to know if providers are being inclusive to Disabled learners, please complete and share: 
Call to Action: Covid-19 Remote Education Survey
ALLFIE has made a written submission to the SEND All Party Parliamentary Group Inquiry into the SEND framework and had meetings with Sally-Ann Hart and Olivia Blake (SEND APPG Chair/Vice Chair) and Lisa Cameron (Disability Chair). On 2 December Simone Aspis (ALLFIE Campaigns and Policy Coordinator) presented evidence to the SEND All Party Parliamentary Group, including findings of ALLFIE’s Inclusive Education Lockdown Survey:

University Admissions System

The Government has announced a Department for Education consultation on possible reforms to the University Admissions System, meaning offers will be based on students’ actual rather than predicted examination grades:
