OFSTED and CQC reports

From time to time inspections carried out by OFSTED and the CQC into special educational needs and disability provision by local education authorities. As noted by the government:

The former Minister of State for Children and Families commissioned Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to work together to develop and deliver a programme of 152 local area inspections over approximately a five-year period. Together, the two inspectorates designed a new framework to inspect the effectiveness of local areas in fulfilling their new duties in the ‘Special educational needs and disability code of practice: 0 to 25 years’ (the Code of Practice).1 The first local area inspections took place in May 2016.
