Official statistics: Local authority children's services inspections and outcomes

24 Apr 2014 Ofsted

Ref: 20110017

This page has statistics on the findings of inspections of local authority children’s services. Each quarterly release comprises commentary, charts and tables in pdf format and charts and tables in Excel format.

The forthcoming release of official statistics on “Placements of children looked after at 31 March 2013” has been delayed from Thursday 24 April to Thursday 5 June 2014. This reflects the complexity of the data and the fact this this is the first time this information has been published.

The data comes from a new data collection and the work involved in quality assuring and analysing the data in order to ensure it meets the needs of the new framework has taken longer than anticipated. The new framework is for inspections of local authority services for children in need of help and protection, children looked after and care leavers.

As the data collection is an annual collection, this release will be published on an annual basis, although this is subject to change as new inspection frameworks are introduced.

We discovered an error in the key findings document originally published on 15 October 2013: this affects the excel workbook and key findings document(s) for this release.

The error was that one of the inspection outcomes given in Table 5 was incorrect. We have corrected all of the affected documents and we have replaced them.

We made the correction on 23 October 2013.

The timetable for future releases of official statistics about local authority children’s services inspections and outcomes is in the Schedule for the release of official statistics.
