Portsmouth Local Area SEND Inspection took place from 1st to 5th July 2019. The inspection report, published on 24th September highlights many areas of good practice including strong leadership, coproduction, joint commissioning and effective joint working across agencies.
Inspectors from Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission were on site for 5 days during which time they visited a number of schools, services and settings, met with managers as well as frontline staff from across education, health, social care and the voluntary sector, and most importantly listened to the views of parents and young people.
My thanks to everyone who is involved in providing services and improving outcomes for children and young people with SEND and their families in Portsmouth. We will continue to build on this very positive work through the SEND Strategy. Please click on the image below to view the report.
