Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) are visiting West Sussex, as part of an inspection looking at arrangements for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) aged 0-25.
They would like to hear from parent and carers, children and young people and practitioners about the support you get and how this is helping you.
Your views are important to them. They will help inspectors understand experiences of SEND arrangements in your area. The survey will close at 9am on 21 November 2023.
All information can be found on our Your Voices pages at West Sussex County Council: Your Voice: Area SEND Inspection – survey information
SEND & Inclusion Strategy
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.
