SEND Accelerated Progress Plan published
In May, Ofsted and CQC published the findings of their February revisit of services in South Gloucestershire for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND).
The letter noted progress that has been made since the original inspection in 2017, and highlighted further work needed to improve services for young people with SEND.
Following a request from the Department for Education, we are now pleased to publish our Accelerated Progress Plan (APP), that sets out how we will continue to address the outstanding areas to ensure that all aspects of our arrangements for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities are of a good standard. The APP details:
the actions we are taking to respond to the outstanding concerns;
the governance and accountability that will support the next phase of improvement;
the ways in which we will measure the progress in delivering the improvements across the next 12 months.
The Council and Partners are committed to working closely with young people and their families, South Glos Parents and Carers, the Parent and Carer Forum for South Gloucestershire, to provide highly effective services responsive to the needs of children and young people across the Local Area.
