OFSTED Monitoring Snapshot (May 2019)

“Comprehensive early help assessments capture children’s voices well and feature well-balanced analysis to inform subsequent plans. Direct work with children is promoting an early engagement and understanding of the child’s experience”

“Effective systems are in place to stepchildren up from early help to children’s services when their needs increase.”

“The response to children who go missing is rigorously overseen through effective weekly multi-agency ‘missing’ meetings. Actions from these meetings successfully reduce risk to children”
