special education needs services transformed in Cheshire east

Written by on 2 July 2021

Services for children with special educational needs across Cheshire East have been transformed.

Inspectors say sufficient progress has been made in addressing two areas of significant weakness identified at a previous inspection three years ago.

They found that, the timelines, process and quality of EHC plans have been transformed, saying that by early 2020, almost every needs assessment was completed within the 20-week deadline, compared to less than one in six in 2018.

Regarding support for children and young people with autism, inspectors found that more children are starting nursery and school with their needs understood and met. 

In 2018 more than 200 children and young people were waiting more than 12 weeks for their first assessment, but by March last year, this had been slashed to two weeks.
