The Local Area SEND inspection report is now published, you can view it here.

 

The local area is now required to produce and submit a Written Statement of Action to
Ofsted that explains how the local area will tackle the following areas of significant
weakness:

  •  the waiting times for ASD assessments, and weaknesses in the support for
    children and young people awaiting assessment and following diagnosis of
    ASD
  • the fractured relationships with parents and carers and lack of clear
    communication and co-production at a strategic level
  • the incorrect placement of some children and young people with EHC plans in
    specialist settings, and mainstream school leaders’ understanding of why this
    needs to be addressed
  • the lack of uptake of staff training for mainstream primary and secondary
    school staff to help them understand and meet the needs of children and
    young people with SEND
  • the quality of the online local offer
