Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) services in Northumberland have been recognised for making progress on areas of weakness by Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
In May inspectors spoke with parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities and met with local authority and National Health Service (NHS) officers.
They spoke with frontline practitioners from education, health and care services in the area and reviewed a range of performance data and information including the area’s SEND strategy, selfevaluation, joint commissioning strategy and outcomes framework.
The re-visits findings have now been published and can be viewed here.
