Welcome to your Harrow Parent Carer Forum

Your Local Special Educational Needs & Disability (SEND)

Parent Carer Forum

What is a Parent Carer Forum?

A group of parents and carers of disabled children who work with local authorities, education, health Social care and other providers to make sure the services they plan and deliver meet the needs of disabled children and families.

WHAT IS NEW IN HARROW?

 

WELCOME TO OUR NEW WEBSITE!

HARROW PARENTS 4 DISABLED CHILDREN (HP4DC)

IS NOW SIMPLY CALLED

HARROW PARENT FORUM (HPF)

Parents in mainstream schools felt that our old name did not represent them. SENCOs also told us that the name did not reflect the majority of families in mainstream schools with children and young people with SEN. We held a focus group and discussed the name with various parents and professionals and voted on the simple name that included everyone and easy to pronounce too. We hope you like the name and the simple logo design. We hope to now reach many more families in mainstream schools and become a more representative forum to ensure everyone is able to have their say in what happens with the SEND reforms in Harrow.
