SENDIASS Parent/Carer Survey to feed into the Local Area Revisit by Ofsted/the Care Quality Commission (CQC) Inspectors
Ofsted and (CQC) have been conducting inspections of Special Educational Needs Disability (SEND) provision in Local Authorities across the country since May 2016. Following those initial visits the DfE announced a program of revisits for local areas who had to produce a Written Statement of Action (WSOA).We are expecting our local area revisit to take place in the very near future. We are really keen to hear your views on the progress made in our local area since the initial visit in July 2018.
