Alongside this update report, Ofsted also published some key messages from the report via SlideShare.


SEND Inspection Resources

Brighton and Hove Council has shared a helpful presentation outlining their experiences of the SEND inspection in May 2016, see it here.

At a recent meeting of the Standards Performance & Inspection Policy Committee representatives from Hampshire County Council provided the group with an overview of their experiences as a pilot authority for the new SEND inspection.

The presentation delivered on the day and a suite of documents produced by the team - including some useful templates to help other LAs before and during their inspection and an example copy of the authority’s SEND self-assessment – can be found below.

ADCS is grateful to Hampshire for sharing these resources.
