What is the Parent Partnership Service?
The Parent Partnership Service provides impartial advice, information and support to parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) throughout Hampshire. Our service is available to all families for whom special educational needs plays a part.
The Parent Partnership Service aims to ensure that parents and carers play an informed part in planning provision to meet their child’s special educational needs. We aim to build partnerships between parents and carers, the LEA and schools. We also encourage parents and carers to be involved in the development of local SEN policy and practice.
