Information on local area duties toward children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities can be found on the Department for Education’s website: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/send-guide-for-parents-and-carers.
Following on from the inspection findings, the Local Authority, in partnership with the CCG and partners has prepared a written Statement of Action that was submitted to Ofsted, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector, Department for Education, Department for Health and Care Quality Commission on the 31 October 2017. This statement of action is focused on the eight areas of weakness found.
It is important to note that some of the short comings found in the Inspection had already been identified and an external review of SEND in education had already been commissioned. The outcomes of that review, together with the Statement of Action, will focus the work of the LA and its partners going forward, with emphasis on our joint work / co-production of services within the whole local area including partner agencies and also parents / carers and young people, to ensure we have one strategic vision for the whole Bury Local Area.
OfSTED has confirmed that the Written Statement of Action accurately responds to the inspection outcomes.
