An review into how Warwickshire children with special educational needs are cared for will take place next week.

Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) will be visiting Warwickshire County Council and Warwickshire Clinical Commissioning Group to carry out its local area inspection.

Inspectors will look to see how local the council identifies special educational need children, and how it supports them through school and into adulthood.

State schools, colleges, private schools, and health providers will all be assessed during the week. This as well as speaking to parents and carers.

A report will then be produced within six weeks and shared on the county council website.

CCG chair Dr Sarah Raistrick has said that she wants health services to work based on the experiences of local people.

"This means," she said, "that the CCG, partners, families and young people will work together to identify what matters in accessing education, health and care and to identify any gaps in local provision.

“It’s a really important programme for us and we are proud to be working together to improve things for our local children, young people and their families.”
