SEND: Old issues, new issues, next steps
Today we have published our final report from Ofsted and CQCs programme of interim visits to local areas.
In this report, we look at the history of SEND reforms and the impact that the pandemic has had on children and young people with SEND, and their families.
Amanda Spielman, HMCI, has also written a commentary to share more information about the plans for our new area SEND inspection framework.
We have produced three short videos which summarise the key information from the report and the commentary. You can access these via the links below:
Nick Whittaker talks about the programme of visits to local areas conducted by Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission.
Nick Whittaker and Lee Carey discuss joint area SEND inspections.
We would like to thank all our stakeholders who have contributed to the programme of interim visits, and the early development of the area SEND inspection framework.
We intend to share an easy read version of the report and commentary, and will share this when it is published.
