Kirklees Council Local Area SEND Inspection – please take part

Kirklees Council will be having its Local Area SEND Inspection next week. This is an inspection connected with how the Council supports children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) since the Children & Families Act came into force in September 2014. We have included a copy of the letter from CQC/Ofsted below and the links to a survey and an email address where you can send information if you wish. A short video telling you what the inspection is about can be found at the beginning of the survey.

The focus of the inspection will be how well the various departments in Kirklees Council have carried out the requirements of the above Act.

A couple of us have completed the survey and it takes about 10 to 20 minutes depending on how much you want to say in the free text boxes. 

There will be some events where you may get chance to meet the inspectors:

If your child/young person attends any of the following, watch out for a letter or call from them with more information:
Castle Hill School, Newsome High School, Woodley School, Royds Hall, Windmill Primary, Kirklees College.

PCAN will also be holding a Zoom event next Tuesday 8th February 11.30 am to 1 pm where you can share your views with one of the inspectors.  Although we are hosting, the inspector will direct the event.  Numbers are limited so please book quickly if you know you can attend.  It would still be really helpful to fill in the survey.  You should have received the letter below already from your child’s education setting.
