Inspectors from Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission will be in Cambridgeshire next week to see how well the area is providing for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
The visit, announced today (Monday) aims to evaluate how different partners have been working together to meet the care needs of our children and young people since the big legal reforms of 2014.
Schools, Early Years and FE settings, as well as the local authority and clinical commissioning group, will be included in the inspection.
The inspection applies to services for pupils with SEN Support in schools as well as those with EHCPs or statements. And evaluates how well the local authority, health commissioners and providers are at identifying and meeting the needs of children and young people with SEND and improving their outcomes following the Children and Families Act 2014.
Parent carer views on how responsibilities are being met are a vital part of the inspection, which starts on Monday March 20.
