A single inspection framework for children's services

12 Apr 2013

The Chief Inspector of Ofsted today announced plans to inspect local authority child protection and services for children who are looked after under a single, combined framework.

Sir Michael Wilshaw said that following discussions with local government representatives and after assessing the results of initial pilots, he had taken the decision to defer the proposed new multi-agency child protection inspections involving a number of other inspectorates, that had been planned for launch in June. He also said Ofsted would no longer be going ahead with plans to inspect services for looked after children separately.
