Local Area Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Consultations (SEND)
The inspection of local areas’ effectiveness in identifying and meeting the needs of children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. Between 12 October 2015 and 4 January 2016, Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) consulted formally on the proposals for inspecting how effectively local areas fulfil their responsibilities to children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. The inspections will be carried out jointly by the two inspectorates under section 20 of the Children Act 2004.
Bradford's Local Offer website, social media, Bradford schools online and the Bradford councils website welcomed and promoted the Local Area SEND consultations and how to complete the online consultation process and how to submit views.
Summary of Ofsted and CQC key findings to the four proposals:
The overall response was very positive and there was strong support for each of the four proposals. Respondents gave helpful and insightful comments and we were pleased to receive so many from children and young people. The responses are helping to inform our decisions about the inspection framework and how we will inspect local areas.
