Last year, RNIB and VIEW, with support and collaboration with NatSIP, have produced some guidance around the implications for this for children and young people with vision impairment. This has been updated for March 2021.
The guidance sets out some possible issues and questions for schools to consider, that we hope will be helpful in any risk assessments that are being carried out. The aim is to ensure that any specialist needs of children with vision impairment continue to be met.
- Meeting the needs of children with vision impairment as schools and colleges re-open (Word, 107KB) – updated March 2021.
This document has been produced alongside: VIEW’s Students with vision impairment returning to school after the lockdown: considerations for risk assessments (June 2020) and HabVIUK Coronarvirus (COVID 19) Habilitation and Risk Assessment Guidance (May 2020) which provide further detail.
