Parent Partnership Service
The FIND Directory as part of the Parent Partnership Service at Lancashire County Council is a statutory service that offers information, help and support for parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities [SEND].
The service has a role in making sure that parents and carers views are heard and understood and that these views inform local policy and practice.
Parent Partnership Services can help you by:
- Giving accurate and neutral information about Special Educational Needs or Disability (SEND) assessment policies and procedures.
- Arranging a face-to-face meeting to explain the SEND documentation.
- Assisting you to complete the Parental Advice Forms.
- Explaining the content of Statements of SEND.
- Accompanying you on visits to schools so that you can make informed decisions about your preference.
- Liaising between you, school and Lancashire County Council's Special Educational Needs Support Service [SENDSS] regarding a child's special educational needs.
Who can I contact for further information or if I have any issues or concerns?
The first point of contact for anything related to your child’s education is the class teacher. We encourage parents not to wait for the next formal opportunity to meet but to contact us on an ongoing basis. Or, the SENDCo/senior leaders can be contacted directly to discuss your concerns.
If you have any complaints about any SEN issues, please contact the SENDCo or the Head Teacher if appropriate.
