Children and young people questions

  • Question: Why was the Council inspected by Ofsted?

  • Question: What does the Ofsted inspection cover?

  • Question: How have you gone from requires improvement to outstanding?

    Answer:

    Since our last inspection in 2016 we have spent a lot of time on improving social work practice and have introduced a number of new specialist services.

    We have listened to the views of our children and young people, families, workforce and our partners to identify the areas for improvement. We have invested in our workforce, creating a very strong learning culture. Our social workers and other staff who support children are very committed. Children are valued and receive child focussed services tailored to their individual needs. Children are listened to and their experiences are well understood and inform planning to improve their lives.

    We have implemented a clear and ambitious vision for vulnerable children and families in Telford and Wrekin which has resulted in outstanding services that are benefitting children. Despite this success we continue to work to improve services. Ofsted say that our strategic planning is exceptional.

    We know our services well and pay particular attention to quality assurance. We recognise our strengths and weaknesses and are tenacious about eliminating weaknesses.

    Our children in care are cared for and cared about.
