On 17 March 2020, all routine inspections were suspended due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

As part of the phased return to routine inspection, Ofsted has been carrying out interim visits to local areas to hear about the experiences of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), their families and the practitioners and leaders who are supporting them.

Evidence from education, health and social care leaders and practitioners between 1 September and 4 December 2020 can be found here
