We felt really proud and honoured to receive a Pride of Swindon Team award. We were invited to an amazing awards ceremony where there was a fantastic community spirit. We are so proud of our team, past and present, for all their hard work and commitment over the years.

Announcement regarding a forthcoming SEND Inspection on Monday 11th to Wednesday 13th October
Ofsted and CQC are revisiting the local area following the 2018 SEND inspection. There is going to be a survey that you can complete if you are a parent or carer of any child or young person aged 0-25 who have any kind of SEND, whether you have a diagnosis or not, access SEND Support or have an EHCP.
In the November 2018 inspection you may recall the survey information was not promptly passed on to parents and carers via many of the local educational settings. Swindon Borough Council has put some measures in places to prevent this from happening again, to ensure that the link is passed on to as many families as possible to complete the survey. The communications will go out to individual families with EHCPs, schools, the SEND News Splash newsletter and will be uploaded to the Local Offer website.
The survey will be open from Monday 4th at noon and will close on Friday 8th at noon. We will share the link as soon as we can. There will also be an online meeting with the Inspector on Monday 11th at 7pm for parents to attend, and details will follow over the next few days as to how you can book on.
