Special Educational Needs and Disability Register

All local authorities must have a record or register of children with Special Educational Needs and / or Disabilities (SEND) in their area. If you live in either Kingston or Richmond, we encourage anyone whose family includes a child or young person whose has a special educational need or disability to register.

Everyone on the register will benefit from:

  • - Information about support, services, activities and events
  • - Information aimed at young people with disabilities
  • - Opportunities to have your say about the services that are important to you
  • - The knowledge that your anonymous statistical data is helping us to plan and improve services

Kingston Parent Carer Forum

Kingston PCF is made up of local parents and carers who work to ensure children with special educational needs and disabilities and their needs are heard and understood by local services and decision makers. Part of a national network we try to ensure by feeding in the experiences and needs of Kingston parents and carers who have children with additional needs and disabilities, better, more relevant and responsive services will follow. As local SEND parents ourselves we bring a wealth of different experiences of helping our own children and young people through life.

SEND parent and carer engagement officers ensure that parents and carers of children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities are fully engaged with the services provided by Achieving for Children. More information can be found here


SEND Parent Champions are a group of local parent and carer volunteers (working alongside Achieving for Children) who are supported to inform other families with a child or young person with special educational needs or a disability about useful services in their area. The initiative is part of a national scheme that helps thousands of families and provides full training. We have lovely SEND parent champions who have recently joined the scheme and are parents at Grand Avenue. They are able to: be a point of contact for other SEND parents; liaise with yourself and the school; help with signposting to local services; give information to SEND parents in the form of leaflets and website links giving; raises parents’ awareness of SEND services in the area; brings SEND families together in community settings; allows SEND families to be involved in the development of local services; work to support minority groups and their engagement with local services; plus more!!
