SEND inspections

Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) jointly inspect local areas to see how well they fulfil their responsibilities for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities. 

Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) carried out jointly an inspection of our local area between 13 and 17 November 2017. You can view the Ofsted inspection report on the Ofsted reports website.

The SEND Partnership is preparing for a re-visit of the local area from Ofsted. The inspectors will find out if the local area has made enough progress to improve the twelve areas of significant concern in SEND support and services identified in 2017.

You can read more about how they inspect local areas in the leaflet for families (external link).
