The Department continues to monitor progress with implementation of the special educational needs duties set out in the Children and Families Act 2014. Our intention is that a combination of local accountability measures, data and analysis and independent inspection will show how the SEND system is performing, which parts are working well and less well and whether outcomes are improving for children and young people. The Department will consider the findings from the local area inspections as part of our approach to monitoring progress to assess where additional support and challenge may be required.
