SEND & Inclusion Strategy

During 2024:

Ofsted and the CQC have now published their report (which was embargoed until 29 February) following the Area SEND inspection for West Sussex Local Area Partnership, which concluded on 1 December 2023. The report gives West Sussex Local Area Partnership the middle rating for delivery, planning and commissioning of services and you can read the full report here.

During 2023:

We developed a new SEND & Alternative Provision (AP) improvement plan, with six partner working groups that will report into the SEND and AP Strategy & Partnership Board. We have created a webpage for the SEND & AP Improvement Plan which highlights the six areas of work

During 2022:

During the early part of 2022, we worked closely with colleagues from SEND Commissioning, health, social care and parent carers to see how our SEND & Inclusion Strategy 2019 could reflect a more holistic approach to supporting children and young people with SEND. Following feedback, we incorporated elements of the Joint Commissioning Strategy, in particular broadening our understanding of health and social care and how we need to better listen to and meet the needs of our children and young people with SEND.
