The Local Authority is about to undergo a re-inspection of its SEND Provision.

Letter to be circulated to parents and carers of CYP with SEND by Lancashire County Council.

Re-visit of Lancashire County Council issued with a written statement of action from Monday 9 March 2020 – Thursday 12 March 2020.

Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) will carry out jointly a re-visit of your local area following the previous inspection that took place between 13 – 17 November 2017.

The re-visit will evaluate how effectively leaders have addressed the areas of serious weaknesses detailed in the written statement of action (WSOA).
During the re-visit, Ofsted and CQC inspectors will be keen to speak to as many children and young people and their parents and carers as possible, specifically about the weaknesses identified in the WSOA.

How can local children, young people, parents and carers contribute their views during this local area re-visit?

There are several ways in which children, young people, parents and carers from your provision can engage with the re-visit process and contribute their views.

The inspectors will gather the contributions of parents and families through an online survey and a face-to-face open meeting. The focus of the online survey and open meeting will be set by the inspectors and will be based on the WSOA.

1. Parents and carers who would like to take part in this survey can follow this internet link: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/LancashireRe-VisitLASEND/. The survey will open at 12 noon on Friday 28 February and close at 12 noon on Monday 9 March.

Parents and carers can submit their contributions via the online survey using the link provided above.
