Have your say during the local area partnership special educational needs and disability inspection in North Northamptonshire

11 January 2024

On 8 January North Northants Council received notification from OFSTED and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) announcing a three-week inspection of our local area Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) partnership arrangements.

The inspection provides an independent, external evaluation of the effectiveness of the local area partnership’s arrangements for children and young people with SEND, and, where appropriate, will make recommendations as to how the local area partnership could further improve the arrangements.

During the inspection process, OFSTED, CQC, and our partnership strongly encourage the completion of surveys by individuals and organisations with first-hand experience of our partnership arrangements. This includes input from Young People, Parents, Carers, and Professionals.

On-line surveys are the easiest way to submit your views, these are being promoted across our partnership’s social media channels. However, should you need a physical copy of the survey these can be obtained by calling 0300 126 3000​. There is a short period of time for the surveys being completed, with on-line submissions closing at 9am on 16 January 2023.

Findings of the inspection, including any strengths, areas for improvement and any plans we are putting in place following the feedback will be shared at the earliest opportunity after conclusion of the inspection.
