Joint Local Area SEND Inspection

6th December 2018
Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspected the effectiveness of SEND in Northumberland from 1 - 5 October 2018 

This inspection evaluates how effectively Northumberland:

  • identify the needs of children and young people with special educational needs and or/disabilities; and 
  • meet the needs of these children and young people so that their outcomes and chances of participating fully in society improve.

Inspectors gathered the views of children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities in Northumberland, and the views of their parents as part of the inspection process. They visited early years settings, schools, colleges and specialist services, looked at records and spoke to area officers and leaders at educational settings.
