2022 Kirklees Local Area SEND inspection

The inspection is over, what happens now?

Kirklees Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Area Inspection Update

As you will be aware Ofsted and CQC have undertaken an area inspection between 31st January to 11th February of Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) provision and services in Kirklees.

We want to thank everyone who has participated in the inspection, the young people, their families and carers, schools, colleges, and a range of frontline practitioners from health, the local authority and other partners. We also want to thank all the people who completed and encouraged others to complete the on-line survey.

We will not get the final outcome from the inspection until late March/April. When we get the report we will share the details of the findings with you. We do know the inspectors saw some fantastic work and practice in a range of different settings and locations and received open and honest feedback about the services in Kirklees.

Once again can we thank you for your support in the inspection process.
