Ofsted Inspection of Special Educational Needs (SEN) Provision
No separate judgement for SEN provision
Ofsted does not make a separate judgement about special educational needs (SEN) provision. Instead, SEN provision forms part of a whole school inspection.
Paragraph 132 of the School Inspection Handbook says that before making their final judgement on a school’s overall effectiveness, inspectors must evaluate, “the extent to which the education provided by the school meets the needs of the range of pupils at the school”, including disabled pupils and pupils with SEN.
