“Welcome to the first SEND Improvement Programme briefing note for all stakeholders, parents, carers and families, following Ofsted’s and Care Quality Commissions Joint Area Inspection findings which were published this summer. This briefing is aimed at all stakeholders, parents and carers to keep them informed about Dudley’s SEND Improvement Journey. We know that every child or young person deserves the very best, but we also recognise that we do not yet deliver this on a consistent basis in Dudley. In the summer inspectors found a number of areas of significant weakness in addition to some areas of strong practice. We were reassured that the inspectors echoed our self-evaluation and understanding of areas for improvement and we fully accept their findings. We know that there is a lot to do. Over the last few months we have been developing our action plan ensuring that it now takes account of all the feedback in the report”
