Somerset Local Authority
Yesterday, we welcomed the commissioning officer from Somerset Local Authority to Abbot's Way School. This was an update meeting further to the due diligence process, with a focus on support and compliance.
The visit comprised an audit covering Safeguarding and Health & Safety, with online attendance from appropriate members of the LA SEND team, and further detailed discussion around other aspects of our provision and a tour of our premises.
We are delighted to report that feedback was extremely positive and support for our vision was forthcoming. It was great to be able to show in practice what we have been relaying remotely for many months. Having a longstanding professional relationship with the LA, we were proud to be able to explain our mission and relate it to our learning and therapy spaces in the flesh.
As ever, please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries or feedback. We will aim to update you further on the weekend with anything pertinent to the coming days.
With best wishes as always
Hellen and Gareth
