Sarah Harrison – Parent Representative & NELPPF Secretary

My name is Sarah Harrison and I have two main reasons why I decided to get involved in Parent Participation. I am a mum to three gorgeous little girls; twins plus one, two years apart.

One of my twins was diagnosed with autism at 27 months old.
As is often the case, I was left feeling confused, isolated and had no idea what the future would hold or what support was available locally.

That is the first reason why I became involved in NELPPF – so that other parents do not feel lost, alone and without relevant information as I did.
I am also a former infant school teacher with extensive Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) experience; however I know that no matter how many courses teachers go on or what certificates the professionals may hold, there is no better training than living through it yourself.

I strongly believe that parents are the true experts of their children and that is the second reason I am involved – to ensure the voices of “parents as experts” are not underestimated or ignored.

What a fantastic day to be part of our special school! Our KS3 learners having been planning an Enterprise Day over the past 4 weeks and what they delivered in aid of raising money for charity was truly inspirational! 👌🏻

They planned and delivered these great activities throughout the day:-

🌟Jamie’s Carwash

🌟Sienna & Leon’s Pizzeria Cafe

🌟Reagan’s Raffle

🌟Robert Street Card Factory & raffle

🌟Matthew’s Tombola

🌟Sophie’s Hair Salon

🌟Splash the managers

🌟Orchard Bake off cake 🧁 sale 😊

🌟Charlie’s Charity penalty shootout ⚽️

It was great to see not only our learners excelling in socialising with their peers and adults but the amount of parents who came to support our group of superstars! 😊👌🏻

Thank you to everyone that attending, bought items and the amazing company’s that donated prizes for the raffle, together we raised...???
