Updates on the SEND Inspection revisit and SENDIASS in NE Lincolnshire

Sent on behalf of North East Lincolnshire SENDIASS:

Local Area Ofsted revisit
You may be aware that we have been expecting an Ofsted/ Care Quality Commission (CQC) Special Educational Needs and Disabilities revisit of North East Lincolnshire Council (NELC) following on from their initial inspection in July 2018.
This week the Local Authority have been notified that the revisit will take place on Monday 21, Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 March 2022.

Attached is the formal letter to parent/carers from Ofsted inviting families to be involved in the inspection process.
You can also find this on the SEND Local Offer news page: NELC SEND Local Offer | Ofsted revisit. Letter to parent carers (nelincs.gov.uk). Please get involved if you have compliments, comments, or concerns about special educational needs services in NE Lincolnshire.

Barnardo’s has been privileged to have hosted SENDIASS, formerly  Parent Partnership Service, in North East Lincolnshire since 1999.

Over the 20 years plus we have been very lucky to have had an amazing staff team who have strived to deliver a great service to provide families and professionals with free independent and impartial advice, information and support about education, health and social care on matters relating to special educational needs and disability.
From all of us at Barnardo’s we would like to thank you for using the service, getting involved, providing us with great feedback and allowing us to support you.
