Re-inspection of Inadequate Local Authorities Comment

Dave Hill, Vice President of the Association of Directors of Children’s Services, said:

“A poor Ofsted judgement can lead to a high staff turnover from senior leaders through to frontline staff. Creating turmoil in an already struggling local authority, making it difficult to do what is most important - turning around services for children, young people and families in need. As stated in the ADCS consultation response the timing between the original inspection and subsequent re-inspection of services is critical if we are to truly transform services. The overriding concern should be the local authority’s view of their own progress but this is not to say the Department for Education does not have an important role to play in monitoring the progress being made.”
