Ofsted Focused Visit on Care Leavers

Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.


Members received a report of the Director of Community & Children’s Services relative to the Ofsted Focused Visit on Care Leavers which looked at the City of London’s offer for care leavers. The Director advised that it was a positive visit, resulting in three notable areas of improvement: risk assessment should more clearly articulate measures to address and minimise risk; the demonstration of young people’s involvement in preparing their pathway plans should be more explicit and consistent; social workers should receive consistently reflective, analytical supervision and clear management oversight.


Members were informed that the Ofsted report was postponed from the January 2019 agenda due to the Bridge House Estates reports, as there would not have been sufficient time to discuss the report.


RESOLVED – That the report be received and its contents noted.
