Ofsted to visit children’s social care providers in September post-coronavirus (COVID-19)

Ofsted has announced that it will begin visiting local authorities and children’s social care providers from September 2020, following concerns for the safety of vulnerable children during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The visits will not result in graded judgements, but Ofsted will publish its findings and recommend improvements when needed. Ofsted will prioritise visits to authorities over which it has concerns.

Guidance has also been published for local authorities and children’s social care providers on how Ofsted’s visits will work.
