In December 2014, the Department for Education asked Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to inspect local areas on their effectiveness in fulfilling their duties for children and young people who have special educational needs and/or are disabled.

Ofsted and the CQC will hold a public consultation on the proposed inspection framework, with first inspections taking place in May 2016.

All local areas in England will be inspected over a 5 year period.
