Ofsted (July 2019) recognised:

'Leadership of the provision for pupils with SEND is effective. Leaders, teachers and support staff work together to identify pupils’ needs, and to secure appropriate professional advice and guidance where it is needed. Pupils with SEND benefit from well-planned support and adjustments to teaching, and make strong progress from their individual starting points. Leaders and staff know pupils and their families well. The systems they have established enable them to build up a strong picture of pupils’ individual needs, and of the factors which might have an impact on pupils’ readiness to learn. Leaders have established strong links with a range of agencies. This helps them to provide support for pupils in school, and secure appropriate external advice where necessary.'
