Surveys and Consultations

On this page you will find details of SEND related surveys and consultations (most recent first).  These come from a variety of sources.

  • HPCI runs its own surveys for parents and carers on various topics to help HPCI be as representative as possible.
  • HPCI helps design and host surveys with Hertfordshire County Council about services they run or commission (pay for).
  • HCC (Hertfordshire County Council) run their own surveys and consultations which we publicise to parents and carers so that HCC gets as wide a range of views as possible. Often HPCI has helped design the survey/consultation questions but not always.
  • National surveys – these could be from national organisations or government departments.

Where possible we also publish the survey or consultation results and keep our parent network informed about any further developments.


Return to Education Survey October 2020

This survey was to see how things had gone over the first lock down for families and in the return to school.  Thank you to the 192 parent/carers who completed the survey and we have produced a summary which you can read November 2020 survey summary

HPCI has shared the results with senior service leaders at HCC and we are in the process of working with them on how they are responding to the findings.

Complex Health Needs Survey run in October 2020

This survey was for the parent carers of children up to age 11 who have complex health needs looking at key working for families in the pre-school phase.  It was completed by 39 parent carers which is a really good number for this type of need.  The results of the survey are here    Those results will also be used by the HPCI parent rep and others working on the project. It is good news that the recruitment process for a key worker for the pre-school families of a child with complex health needs has begun.  We really welcome this development which we are confident will make a positive difference to those families.  Survey results summary Complex Health keyworkers

HPCI Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) Survey

We are conducting a survey for any parent or carer of children aged 3 to 25 who have Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD). This includes dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD/ADD (attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder), dyscalculia or dysgraphia, either identified or suspected.

The survey is to help gather evidence that builds a picture of the current experience of families with SpLD in Hertfordshire.  Should you have more than one child with SpLD then please complete a separate survey for each child.

You can fill out the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SpLD2020

Feel free to pass the link on to other parents and carers of children with SpLD who may be interested – they do not need to be a member of HPCI.  Closing date for survey is 23rd February.
