News: Official letter with regards to SEND Local area re-inspection 2020

Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) re-visited Durham as part of the local area SEND inspection between 22-24 January 2020. This visit followed the previous inspection that took place in 2017 and evaluated how effectively leaders have addressed the areas of serious weaknesses detailed in the written statement of action (WSOA).

The inspector said- “MCT’s contribution has been substantial and influential, the group challenges well”

Amy and Sara from MCT have worked hard with the local authority and NHS for the last 18 months to prepare and push for improvements as described in the original inspection.

All of MCT are passionate in making changes and bringing every parent carers issues forward to the person able to force that change.

We may be “blowing our own trumpet ” but we can genuinely say they couldn’t have done it without us 😂
