Parents invited to join webinar and have their say on SEND inspection

Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission will be conducting an inspection of the local area’s Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) arrangements as part of their routine inspections from next Monday.

The local area refers to Wiltshire Council, Clinical Commissioning Group, schools, colleges, health providers, children’s centres, Wiltshire Parent Carer Council and other relevant partners.

The inspection will consider how effectively the local area:

  • Identifies and assesses the needs of children and young people with SEND,
  • Meets the needs of these children and young people so that their outcomes and chance of participating fully in society improve

The inspection will run from Monday 29 January to Friday 2 February.

Part of the fact finding process is to invite parents and children and young people with SEND to give their views at a special webinar. The session will be led by Jen Southall, Her Majesty’s Inspector, who will ask parents and carers about their views and experiences on how effectively the Wiltshire local area is fulfilling its responsibilities.

The webinar which is organised and hosted by Ofsted, will be on Friday 26 January from 10am to 11am.
