Inspection of Safeguarding Services
Following the Ofsted Inspection of Safeguarding which took
place between 19th and 23rd March, 2012 the new Ofsted paper
has been published.

services within a local area. It focuses on evaluating outcomes for
children and young people and the impact that practice and
all services have on improving outcomes, including through managing
risk and minimising the incidence of child abuse and

In October 2010 Worcestershire received its first inspection of Safeguarding
and Looked After Children (PDF 130 KB). As a result of
this inspection Worcestershire received a Notice to Improve from
the Department for Education. We are now receiving another
inspection to review our improvement and progress. The inspection
will focus on the themes contained within the Notice to Improve as
well as evidence from other inspection activity, including
the annual unannounced inspection of contact, referral and
assessment arrangement for children which took place in
Worcestershire on 15th and 16th June 2011. The
Ofsted Unannounced Inspection report (PDF 49 KB).
A wide range of services provided by agencies
and organisations in Worcestershire, most of whom are represented
on the Worcestershire Children's Trust Board and Worcestershire
Safeguarding Children Board will be involved in the
inspection. Planning, preparation and onsite inspection will
potentially affect all organisations working with children,
young people and their families.
