Local Area Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Re-visit

We have been informed that Stockport will be subject to a Local Area Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) revisit starting from Tuesday 27 September 2022

We have just received notice of a re-visit by Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) of our SEND local area, following their previous inspection in September 2018. This is a joint visit conducted by Ofsted and CQC for health. The inspection will evaluate how effectively leaders have addressed the areas of significant weaknesses detailed in the written statement of action (WSOA) and will be carried out in line with updated guidance about the return to Area SEND inspection.

During the re-visit, Ofsted and CQC inspectors will be keen to speak to as many children and young people and their parents and carers as possible, specifically about progress made on the weaknesses identified in the WSOA. Read more .
