  • ​Recruitment and Retention
  • Schools Forum Report
  • Essex SEND Local Area Review Inspection Letter​ - Email that was sent: 

    Dear Colleagues,

    I appreciate that it is now the Christmas holidays, however, I wanted to notify you directly that the Essex SEND Local Area Review Inspection letter has been published on the Ofsted website today (23rd December 2019).  It was delayed due to purdah.

    You can find a link to the report here​.

    and attached is a briefing note to accompany the report.

    I fully understand that not every headteacher in Essex will pick this message up, and therefore we will communicate this again on the 6th January 2020.  However, I also wanted to alert you to the fact the report has been published today in case it is  mentioned to you during the holiday period.  We have shared the report with parents via the ECC and Local Offer websites and SEND Facebook pages and through the Essex Family Forum.   MP's have also been briefed.

    We will of course discuss the report and its implications more fully during the spring term.

    Once again I would like to wish you all a restful and peaceful break over the festive period.

    With kind regards,
