Parents and Carers in Partnership
Parents and Carers in Partnership for Windsor and Maidenhead are a parent, carer forum who are working together to improve provision and outcomes for children and young people (0-25) with special educational needs and disabilities.
What do they do? "Our vision is that our membership is representative of children and young people with and without a specific diagnosis, with and without an Education Health and Care Plan, in special school, in mainstream, home schooled, in any kind of education or indeed none at all."
They want to be involved with education, health and social care leaders, to make a difference to the provision and outcomes for SEND children and young people and to be proactive in identifying opportunities that will improve the outcomes for children and young people and have the connections within education, health and social care to get these listened to in a considered way.
They want to do this by being a good listener and an effective communicator.
"Through effective working in partnership with the people that provide services and support to our children and young people, our vision is to improve the quality of the services they receive both in school, at home and in the community, and therefore enable them to achieve their maximum potential."
