Ofsted SEND revisit outcome information

Sefton Council wants children and young people across the borough to reach their full potential and fully recognises that services for those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) need improvements.

An action plan has been developed and agreed by the Department for Education (DfE) following the Ofsted and Care Quality Commission review that says the local area’s provision needs work to ensure it meets the needs of children, young people and families.  Work is well underway on these actions.

Sefton's SEND Improvement Plan is available here.

A copy of the Ofsted letter is available here 

Further information is available via the Ofsted website here

Between November and December 2019 parents and carers of children/ young people with SEND had the opportunity to take part in a survey on what is going well and what could be improved in our local area around key areas.

The survey can be found here.
