Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) have today launched a consultation on a new draft framework for inspecting local provision for children and young people with SEND.

The proposals will broaden the focus of inspections to not only look at whether local area partnerships are identifying and meeting the needs of children and young people with SEND, but also to assess the impact on their lives and outcomes.

The new framework will introduce an ongoing cycle of inspections and three distinct inspection outcomes.

The framework will also strengthen Ofsted’s response where there are concerns through monitoring inspections and/or early re-inspections.

It will also carry out engagement meetings in all areas and promote continuous improvement for all by requesting visible action plans following full inspections.

Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector, Amanda Spielman, said: ‘The past two years have been challenging for all of us, but the pandemic was particularly hard for the most vulnerable in society.

‘In that time Ofsted has continued to engage closely with the SEND sector, including bodies representing children and young people with SEND and their parents and carers. That has allowed us to develop and refine the proposals for a new framework.

‘I welcome responses from the sector whether that be parents, carers or children and young people themselves to help us shape our plans further. Working together, we can ensure that every child gets the best start in life, whatever their background or needs.’
