The Department for Education asked Ofsted to carry out a study to identify best practice amongst local authorities to prepare for the special educational needs reforms in order to understand whether there is a need for an inspection framework to drive improvements. The findings from the study and the recommendations are a matter for Ofsted. We understand that Ofsted will publish its findings and recommendations from the study by the end of this year.
