SEND provision in Bedford Borough - Parent/Carer Survey
Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) will carry out jointly a re-visit of Bedford Borough following the previous inspection that took place between 05 February 2018 - 09 February 2018.
The re-visit will evaluate how effectively leaders have addressed the areas of serious weaknesses detailed in the written statement of action (WSOA).
During the re-visit, Ofsted and CQC inspectors will be keen to speak to as many children and young people and their parents and carers as possible, specifically about the weaknesses identified in the WSOA (for details of the statement of action and to see the full letter to parents, click here).
How can local children, young people, parents and carers contribute their views during this local area re-visit?
There are several ways in which children, young people, parents and carers from your provision can engage with the re-visit process and contribute their views.
The inspectors will gather the contributions of parents and families through an online survey and a face-to-face open meeting. The focus of the online survey and open meeting will be set by the inspectors and will be based on the WSOA.
