Ofsted and CQC Inspection 

The SEND Partnership in Bexley, made up of education, health, and voluntary organizations, is due for a joint inspection by Ofsted and the CQC.

Ofsted looks at nurseries, schools and colleges to make sure that children and young people are taught as well as possible. They also look at children’s social care.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) assesses the quality of health and social care services in England, like hospitals and care homes.

Together they look at services in local areas that support children and young people with SEND.

This is called a Local Area SEND Inspection.
