Ofsted/CQC SEND Revisit

May 4, 2022

This letter from the inspection team, explains the revisit and how you can share your views as a young person, parent or carer. There are several ways to share your views.

The online survey will open at 12 noon on Tuesday 10th May 2022 and closes at 12 noon on Monday 16 May. The link can be found in the letter or by following this link: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/EssexCountyCouncilRe-VisitLASEND/

Parents and carers can email their contributions directly to the inspection team using this email Lasend.support@ofsted.gov.uk.

Or parents and carers can contact the Essex Family Forum to share their views. Families can email the forum on yourvoice@essexfamilyforum.org or post their comments on the virtual graffiti wall.

The letter mentions opportunities for children, young people and their parents and carers to speak to the Ofsted and CQC inspectors. As soon as we have more details about these sessions, we will share them on the Local Offer, through the Local Offer social media and through all the support groups for SEND families.

The reinspection will only focus on the areas that were identified in the local area inspection in 2019.
