Ofsted single inspection framework now in effect

Ofsted carried out a consultation in June/July 2013 on a single inspection and in October ran a further consultation on the review of the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB).

Ofsted’s single inspection framework is now in effect on a universal, three-year cycle. It brings together into one inspection: child protection; services for looked after children and care leavers; and local authority fostering and adoption services. . The framework is intended to examine the experiences of children who need help, protection and care from the time this support is first needed until a young person who is looked after has made the transition to living independently as a young adult.

The framework is available on: http://www.ofsted.gov.uk/
