A Local Area Inspection took place in September 2018, which was undertaken by Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The final report has now been published and can be read in full here:
The inspection was to determine the local areas’ effectiveness in identifying and meeting the needs of children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities and evaluate how much progress has been made in implementing the SEND Code of Practice 0-25 years, since its implementation in September 2014.
During the inspection inspectors visited settings, schools and a college, talked to, or were contacted by, a significant number of parents and also spoke to children and young people with SEND.
The Council and CCG will be holding three feedback events for parents and carers on:
- 28 November 6.15pm-7.45pm at the Holiday Inn Express, 11 Station Rd, Stockport SK3 9JD. To book a place please register via https://send28nov.eventbrite.co.uk.
