Child protection inspections to start

31st January 2012

Ofsted has said it will begin surprise checks lasting 14 days on local authority child protection services in May.

It said that officers would shadow social workers and speak with children and their families. Ofsted deputy chief inspector John Goldup said: "For the first time in our child protection inspections, we’ll be talking to children and their families directly and shadowing social workers in their day-to-day work. This will be a very important part of the evidence that inspectors will use."
