About Area Groups

DSPL Area Groups are made up of parents, carers, representatives from early years’ providers, primary, secondary and special school headteachers and local authority officers. Together they consider the existing provision and services and whether they meet the needs of the children and young people in the area and draw up strategic plans to make changes where necessary to better use resources in line with the SEND Strategy 2015-18: Shaping the Future of SEND in Hertfordshire.
Contact details for the DSPL Area Groups with Lead Schools are as follows:
