The independent OFSTED inspectors have awarded the Westminster Children's Services team a clean sweep of 'outstanding' ratings. Ofsted recognised that this service, run jointly with The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, has improved since its last inspection in 2016 when 3 out of the 4 services were rated ‘outstanding’.
This year’s result is truly phenomenal when nationally these services have often been cut by other local councils.
The service, teams and leadership were described as 'excellent' by the assessors, especially our services for vulnerable children. Our congratulations to everyone!
