Joint local area SEND inspection in City of London

Between 12-16 March 2018, Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) conducted a joint inspection of the local area of the City of London to judge the effectiveness of the area in implementing the disability and special educational needs (SEN) reforms, as set out in the Children and Families Act 2014.

Inspectors spoke with children and young people who have SEN and/or disabilities, parents and carers, local authority and National Health Service (NHS) officers. They visited a range of providers and spoke to leaders, staff and governors about how they were implementing the special educational needs reforms.

Our inspection letter outlines findings from the inspection, including some areas of strengths and areas for further improvement.

​The draft Children and Young People’s Plan 2018-21

The Children and Young People's Plan (CYPP) is the overarching strategy that sets a framework for our vision for children and young people in the City for the next three years. It outlines:

  • what the issues are for our children and young people
  • how we plan to address them
  • what we hope to achieve.

In the development of this draft plan, we engaged with young people who live and learn in the City and those who care and provide for them. We used this local intelligence, together with data, to determine the vision and priorities of the plan.
