In July Hertfordshire was one of the first Local Authority areas to undergo the new type of inspection looking at how the SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) Reforms from the Children and Families Act 2014 are being implemented across Education, discount cialis Health and Social Care. Many of you will have completed the survey that HPCI ran and the results of which were given to the Inspectors and are also able to be seen on this website. Other parents were able to feed their views in to the inspection by taking part in the Webinar run by Inspectors or by attending a meeting at one of the education settings they visited.
The results, in the form of a short letter style report (no grading) are now available to see at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/local-area-send-inspection-outcome-letters Click on the one for Hertfordshire to view it.
You will also find the results for the other areas inspected so far. You can download a copy of the Hertfordshire report here: joint_local_area_send_inspection_in_hertfordshire
Parent Reps from HPCI have, this week, had some preliminary discussions with key officers on how we may work together to improve things for families in the future. We will also be thinking about what HPCI should do next and we will of course keep our networks posted.
