Care Quality Commission
This consultation seeks your views on proposed changes to the way Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) jointly inspect local area partnerships to assess how they work together to improve the experiences and outcomes of children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).
We are seeking the widest possible range of views from those who have an interest in, or expertise relating to, disability, special educational needs (SEN) and/or alternative provision. We particularly want to hear from children and young people who have SEND, and their parents and carers. We are also keen to hear from local authorities, clinical commissioning groups, professionals and practitioners involved in the commissioning and delivery of services to children and young people with SEND.
Alongside the consultation document, we are also publishing:
- an easy-read version of the consultation
- the draft equalities impact statement
- the draft inspection framework and handbook
Children and young peoples consultation
We are keen to hear from children and young people who have SEND and have set up a dedicated young persons consultation page. This is where young people can access information that is relevant to them and give their views.
