Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) will carry out jointly a re-visit of Cumbria.

Following their previous visit that took place between 18 March and 22 March 2019, the inspecting bodies will return for another visit from December 5 and 8 this year.

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

The revisit will be carried out in line with updated guidance about the return to Area SEND inspection.

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.

These meetings may take place online.

Parents and carers who would like to take part in this survey can follow this internet link: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/CumbriaCountyCouncilReVisitLASEND/.

The survey will open at 12 noon on Monday 28 November and close at 12 noon on December 2.
