SEN Policy and Information
Herts Parent Carer Involvement
HPCI is an independent not for profit organisation run by parent carers covering Hertfordshire and funded by the Department of Education and HCC. HPCI has a network of over 930 parents across Herts and links to a number of parent support groups. Our estimated reach is 5-6000 parent carers. The board of directors oversees HPCI and the current Chair is Helen Errington. We hold events, train and support parent representatives, gather parental feedback on a range of relevant issues and our parent representatives work with the Local Authority and Health on a diverse range of projects across education, health and social care. We are also developing a bank of webinars on a range of SEND topics. See our website for more information and where parents and carers can join our parent network.
Our School Offer

How we identify special needs
What provision we have in place for Special Needs Children.
The professionals and services that we work with.
Who to speak to and what to do if you have concerns about your child
Our school local offer and can be read in our SEN information report which is attached below.
