The SEND Improvement Programme sets out how Birmingham City Council will improve upon the SEND services they provide and improve the outcomes for the children and young people of Birmingham. The programme is a response to a series of poor Ofsted and CQC inspection outcomes from 2021. In this section, you will find the Accelerated Progress Plan, which details the actions that are being taken to improve SEND services in Birmingham.

There is also information about the SEND improvement board, Birmingham’s SEND commissioner and the Ofsted SEND inspection framework.
