SEND Update- January 2019

Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) will carry out jointly a re-visit of Suffolk’s SEND services following their last visit which took place between 12 December 2016 and 16 December 2016.

The re-visit will evaluate how effectively leaders have addressed the areas of serious weaknesses detailed in the written statement of action (WSOA). 

In preparation for the visit, they have provided a letter for parents and carers of children with Special Educational Needs or Disabilties (SEND). Click here to view the letter.

We strive to provide quality, inclusive education for our children in rural schools at the heart of our communities; working as confident individuals, in friendship and partnership.

Together we believe in providing exceptional opportunities that allow each of us to flourish, nurture our creativity and, by developing our talents and challenging our understanding, become the best that we can be.

Each school in the Yox Valley Partnership is a fully inclusive school that ensures all pupils achieve their best personally, socially, emotionally and academically in all areas of the curriculum (regardless of their gender, ethnicity, social background, religion, sexual identity, physical ability or educational needs). Every teacher within the Yox Valley Partnership is a teacher of every child, including those with SEND.
