Sessions and support for Parents/Carers:

From the Head of Integrated Services for Learning:

The SEND Executive Board has developed an online feedback survey to evaluate all Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) services that are provided to schools/parents/carers.  We would like to obtain feedback from anyone who has recently received a SEND service.  The survey should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. All feedback is extremely important to us and will be used to help shape the services that can be accessed by schools/parents/carers - https://surveys.hertfordshire.gov.uk/s/SENDfeedback/
