SEND Inspection feedback

Inspection highlights positive outlook for services supporting children and young people with special educational needs

Local leaders in Blackburn and Darwen are committed to improving the lives of children and young people with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND).

That’s the finding of a new report carried out and published by Ofsted and the health watchdog, the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Inspectors for Ofsted and the CQC spoke with children and young people with SEND, parents, carers and staff from Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council, schools, education settings and Blackburn with Darwen Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

During the five-day joint assessment in June, Inspectors reported that provision for SEND is a key priority for all partners and that there is a real enthusiasm, and “can do attitude”, to work closely together to make sure children and young people get the best possible support.
