“The new Education Inspection Framework 2019 puts more emphasis on inspection SEND provision. The EIF makes it absolutely clear that schools should have an inclusive culture. Leaders and managers should have a clear and ambitious vision for providing high quality, inclusive education to all learners.”

Nick Whittaker, Specialist Advisor SEND Ofsted May 2019

“Before making a final judgement on the overall effectiveness, the inspectors must evaluate…. the extent to which the education provided by the school meets the needs of the range of pupils at the school, in particular the needs of:

  • disabled pupils for the purposes of the Equality Act 2010
  • Pupils who have special educational needs”
