Ofsted and CQC: The inspection of local areas’ effectiveness in identifying and meeting the needs of children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities.
Between 12 October 2015 and 4 January 2016, Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) consulted formally on the proposals for inspecting how effectively local areas fulfil their responsibilities to children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). The inspections will be carried out jointly by the two inspectorates under section 20 of the Children Act 2004. This report summarises the responses to the formal consultation.
