Ofsted inspection of local authority children’s services is changing in 2018.

A new method of inspecting local authority children’s services will begin in January next year, Ofsted confirmed today [29 November 2017].

Inspections of local authority children’s services (ILACS) will look at how well local authorities are supporting and protecting vulnerable children in their area. The new approach is more proportionate, risk-based and flexible than before, allowing Ofsted to prioritise inspection where it is most needed.

ILACS will retain graded inspections, but introduce regular ‘focused visits’ as well as monitoring visits. More frequent contact between inspections will help Ofsted to identify any issues of concern and support local authorities to address them before services deteriorate.
