Fostering agencies and fostering services dataset 2008/09

The fostering dataset gives a snapshot of fostering services in England as of 31 March 2009. Data was submitted last year by nearly 80% of all fostering services. Thank you to everyone who submitted their returns. Although not fully complete, it gives a really useful picture of the numbers and profile of foster carers and children, in both local authority and independent services. It also gives data relating to types of foster care, registrations and deregistrations, and a range of other matters.

Serious case review evaluations: April 2007 onwards

Serious case reviews are local enquiries into the death or serious injury of a child where abuse or neglect is known or suspected to be a factor. They are carried out by Local Safeguarding Children Boards so that lessons can be learned. The responsibility for evaluating serious case reviews was transferred to Ofsted from the Commission for Social Care Inspection in April 2007.

Ofsted is responsible for evaluating serious case reviews in line with the requirements of Working Together to Safeguard Children. The evaluation of a serious case review is not an evaluation of the quality of the professional practice, or the quality of service delivery, in relation to the incident under review. Nor is it about allocating blame. It is an evaluation of the degree to which the review has succeeded in identifying lessons to be learned form the events and the analysis, and the action that needs to be taken to improve the protection of children in the future.

The evaluation list shows the serious case reviews carried out by Local Safeguarding Children Boards that Ofsted has evaluated.

We publish the outcome of evaluations on a quarterly basis.

The latest list was published on 15 July 2010.

Social services performance assessment framework indicators 2003-06

CSCI uses the indicators as part of the evidence to inform its assessments of councils’ performance, as summarised in the annual social services performance ratings. The indicators, however, only paint part of the picture and must be considered as part of a broader set of performance evidence.
