Suffolk SEND inspection

Suffolk Joint Local Area SEND Inspection Outcome Letter Published

Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) conducted a joint inspection of the Suffolk local area from 5 - 12 December 2016 to judge the effectiveness of the area in implementing the Special Educational Needs and Disability reforms as set out in the Children and Families Act 2014.

Inspectors spoke with children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities, parents and carers, representatives of the local authority and National Health Service (NHS) officers. They visited a range of providers and spoke to leaders, staff and governors about how they were implementing the special educational needs reforms. Inspectors looked at a range of information about the performance of the local area, including the local area’s self-evaluation. Inspectors also met with leaders from the local area for health, social care and education. Inspectors reviewed performance data and evidence about the local offer and joint commissioning.

The inspection focused on three key lines of enquiry:
•The effectiveness of the local area in identifying children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities
•The effectiveness of the local area in assessing and meeting the needs of children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities
•The effectiveness of the local area in improving outcomes for children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities

The letter notifying the local authority and the area’s clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) of the outcome of the inspection is available as a download here.

The method and approach used by Ofsted and the CQC, including the full inspection framework and handbook, is available here.
