Supporting local and national accountability

Written by Department of EducationDate 24 Mar 2015

This resource looks at the vision for the overall SEND system, the framework for SEND and how to measure success.

In more detail, also covered are the local roles and responsibilities and local accountability, looking at the early resolution of disagreements. This resource is useful to practitioners and local authorities as it points out effective practice to support delivery.

This resource also looks into the national roles and responsibilities. It discusses how well the new arrangements are working and compares delivery across different areas. Information about the methods of independent assessment (Ofsted/CQC inspection of local areas) and sector-led improvement, are also considered.
