Dear Colleagues in schools and settings,
Following on from my recent communication concerning the forthcoming Ofsted/Care Quality Commission joint re-visit of Dorset SEND services, the letter from Ofsted outlining the plan for the on-line survey and open meeting is attached. It is really important to note that Ofsted and CQC will only be looking at progress against the following specific areas from the Written Statement of Action (WSOA):
Can I request that you help us by forwarding the Ofsted/CQC letter to any parent/carer who has an involvement with SEND at any age or level. This should include those benefitting from SEN support. We will send it out directly where possible but we are not yet in a position to communicate electronically with all parents. Your help facilitating the greatest possible distribution of this letter would be greatly appreciated.
