The Framework for the new Ofsted CQC SEND Local Area Inspection
was published in April 2016. Inspections of local areas started in June 2016. The inspections will ask questions about identifying needs, meeting needs and improving outcomes. Outcomes letters from inspections of local area services are published on the Government website
As part of our Local Area's preparation for this inspection, a self-evaluation package has been developed and an action plan is being created. The self-evaluation documents have been shared across services and with our different stakeholders. To view Essex's self-evaluation framework and summary, please visit the Essex Local Offer
Joint self-evaluation underpins the Essex Local Area approach to SEND reform implementation and delivering outcomes therefore, Essex intends to continue to engage with parents, carers, schools, young people and practitioners across the different services on a regular basis to make self-assessment genuine. The summary that has been produced will be reviewed in January 2017. If you would like to comment on any aspect of this document, please email SEF.Feedback@essex.gov.uk
