Ofsted and CQC inspection SEND report

Ofsted and CQC inspection SEND report

The recent Ofsted and Care Quality Commission joint inspection report of the local area special educational needs and/or disabilities provision.

Earlier this year, Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) carried out an inspection of local area special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) provision. The report detailing the inspection’s findings is published as a download link below.  

We fully accept the overall findings of the report, which highlights areas we can build on and where we must improve. We know that the findings of the report will not come as a surprise to the parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities, who demand and deserve better support.
