Inspection of Salford local area’s effectiveness in identifying and meeting
the needs of, and improving outcomes for, children and young
people who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND)
from 9 December 2019 to 13 December 2019.
Dear Parents and Carers
Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) will carry out jointly an inspection of Salford. Under the Children and Families Act 2014, the government placed new duties on the local health, social and education services that provide for children and young people with SEND. The inspection will evaluate how effectively the local area:
- identifies the needs of children and young people with SEND
- meets the needs of these children and young people so that their outcomes and chances of participating fully in society improve.
The views of children and young people with SEND, and the views of their parents and carers will be gathered during visits to a number of early years settings, schools, colleges and specialist services. These views are critical to the inspection process. During the inspection, Ofsted and CQC inspectors will be keen to speak to as many children and young people and their parents and carers as possible. Inspectors will not be visiting your child’s provision.
How can local children, young people, parents and carers contribute their views during this local area inspection?
There are several ways in which children, young people, parents and carers from your provision can engage with the inspection process and contribute their views:
1. The inspection will include an online recorded webinar to allow Salford parents and carers of children with SEND to contribute. The webinar will take place from noon on Monday, 2 December 2019 until 11:59pm on Tuesday, 10 December 2019.
Parents and carers who would like to take part in this webinar can follow this internet link to register: http://bit.ly/LASENDWebinarSalfordCityCouncil
2. Parents and carers can contact their local Parent Carer Forum at firstname.lastname@example.org to request details of how they can attend the discussions held between parents and carers and the Ofsted/CQC inspection team. The local authority must also provide the details of this meeting.
3. Parents and carers can email their contributions to Lasend.email@example.com.
4. Details about the local area SEND inspection will be available on your local authority’s website and distributed through the local area’s Clinical Commissioning Group/s (CCGs). Information about how children and young people with SEND can share their views about the local area’s effectiveness should be included in the local offer.
During this inspection, the inspectors will collect information about children and young people in the area. They will be looking at local area records, speaking to area officers and leaders at educational settings, and speaking to children, young people and parents or carers. No names will be recorded, but some of the information collected may be capable of identifying a particular child, young person or adult. Ofsted and CQC will use this information to prepare their report, and for the purposes set out in their privacy notices. No information will be published that identifies any individual in the inspection report.
More information is available in the Ofsted and CQC privacy notices which can be found here:
