What’s the return to school been like? Take 5 minutes to complete Disabled Children’s Partnership back to school poll

Monday 21st September 2020

Disabled Children's Partnership is asking families with disabled children - what has the return to school been like for your children and you?

It's such a big moment for children after being out of school for almost six months. And the intention of the government is that all children are now back in school full time. But we know the difficulties and complexities for disabled children. So what is the picture like for you?

Are all disabled children back in school, is there a return to the support your child was getting before lockdown, what are schools doing well to address the transition back to school, and what needs to improve?

This is a short poll, to gauge what the situation is after schools officially opened. Your responses will be used to raise awareness of what is happening for disabled children in schools and in health and social care support with the public and relevant ministers and officials. Thank you as always for taking the time to share your experiences.
