May 2022: Accelerated Progress Plan for Multi-agency Transitions

We are working to an Accelerated Progress Plan, as a city, to improve transitions for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.

We developed this after our local area SEND inspection revisit found we had not made "sufficient progress" in this area.

The plan is available here.

March 2022: SEND Joint Area Inspection

In February 2022, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Ofsted jointly carried out a revisit of services in Sheffield for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. The purpose of the revisit was to assess whether sufficient progress has been made in addressing each of the areas of significant weakness identified at inspection in 2018. 

We are pleased that inspectors found we have made sufficient progress in six of the seven areas of weakness. The work does not end here, and we will continue to work together to ensure continued improvement of services, patient experience and partnership working.
