Local area SEND Inspection

Leicestershire’s education, health and social care services are jointly inspected by Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to see how well they meet their responsibilities towards children and young people with SEN and disabilities.

Update on the SEND revisit to Leicestershire that took place from Monday 14 November to 16 November 2022:

The Leicestershire local area was subject to a SEND re-inspection from 14 to 16 November 2022. The inspection team consisted of the Lead Ofsted Inspector and an inspector from the Care Quality Commission. The purpose of the visit was to consider the progress made by the local area on the two areas included within Leicestershire’s Written Statement of Action:

  • Lack of a joint commissioning strategy
  • Quality of EHC plans

We would like to thank all of the parent/carers that contributed to the survey and attended the meeting with the inspection team. The inspection has taken on board your feedback and this will be referred to within the final report.

It is expected that the final report will be published just before Christmas.
