Ofsted have published their findings following a recent revisit of services in South Gloucestershire for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), run by the council and the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (BNSSGCCG).
The full report can be read here. The report is being shared with schools and parents and carers.
Jenny Theed, Sirona care & health's Director of Operations, said: “Our practitioners are really pleased that the work they have undertaken in partnership with children, young people and their families to make improvements in six of the eight areas since the last inspection have been recognised by Ofsted inspectors; we are committed to maintaining this work while focusing on the final two outstanding areas for improvement over coming months.”
Chrissie Hardman, Head of Children and Family Health Services, said: “We have all worked with parents, carers, young people and our partners to ensure a collaborative approach. Intervening early before problems develop is key to supporting our local children and families and we are keen to improve our listening to what matters to families and responding to individual needs.”
