Information for schools and professionals

Information for schools and settings about providing and managing Leicestershire's Local Offer for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

In February 2020, Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission inspected council and NHS services for children and young people with SEND. 

Following the inspection, partners produced a written statement of action which was been received positively and approved by Ofsted, who, along with the Department for Education, measured our progress.

In November 2022, a re-inspection took place. You can find details of this on our Local area SEND inspection page.
