Ofsted Focussed Visit

Ofsted have published the outcome of their focussed visit to Croydon on 15-16 June.

Debbie Jones (Executive Director Children, Families & Education) said:

“The recent visit demonstrated first and foremost that the ‘front door’ continues to provide a ‘good’ quality of service as reflected in their headline findings:

  • Despite the immense challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the significant changes to the permanent senior leadership team and the considerable, ongoing and far-reaching local authority financial challenges, staff at the ‘front door’ are making safe and appropriate decisions on most referrals.

The 3 areas of development Ofsted have highlighted have been recognised and owned internally and with our partners“.
