Richmond Parent Partnership Service
Do you have a child with special educational needs?
The Parent Partnership Service (PPS) is an independent service to support you and provide help and advice on:
- assessment procedures;
- school reviews and meetings;
- the code of practice;
- solving disagreements;
- school-based special educational needs support;
- school entry, and changing from primary to secondary schools;
- further education and other options after the age of 16; and
- information about particular special educational needs.
- discuss your concerns over the phone;
- make an appointment to meet you (they can meet at your home, at school, at the Croft Centre or somewhere else);
- and send you information.
PPS can help you:
- write your contribution for either a statutory assessment or the annual statement review;
- write letters to professionals;
- get in touch with appropriate professionals;
- come with you to review meetings; and
- come with you to visit possible schools.
PPS can link you with:
- an independent, trained volunteer (named person) to support you through the statutory assessment process;
- voluntary organisations and parent groups that offer support and advice; and
- other parents who have had a similar experience.
