Ofsted Pilot Inspection : A letter to Parent/Carers
Pilot inspection of Bromley’s effectiveness in meeting its responsibilities for disabled children and young people and those who have special educational needs.
Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) are developing a new inspection framework that will be used to evaluate how effectively local areas are implementing the reforms contained in the Children and Families Act 2014. These reforms were introduced in September 2014 and place responsibilities on local areas:
- to ensure disabled children and young people and those who have special educational needs are identified effectively.
- to ensure that these children and young people have their needs met effectively and their outcomes improve.
Bromley has agreed that the inspection development team can carry out a pilot inspection of the area’s effectiveness towards meeting the above responsibilities. This work will add substantially to the developing inspection framework. There will not be a published report from this pilot inspection.
