In April 2013 Ofsted returned and carried out an inspection of Child Protection arrangements. The Inspectors' final judgement was that the overall effectiveness of services was inadequate. The table below contains the two Ofsted Inspection Reports.
The Council was issued with an Improvement Notice in January 2014 (see below), this notice replaced the previous issued in August 2012.
As part of our Improvement Programme we have developed a Plan on a Page, which is used both strategically and in Teams to help explain the journey of improvement. We are undertaking this journey of improvement alongside our partners. The Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) is being strengthened and becoming more effective.
