Executive receives positive feedback on Children’s Services

Published Thursday, 14 December 2017

The extraordinary progress made in Bromley’s Children’s Services over a short space of time was reported to the Executive during their meeting at the Civic Centre on Wednesday 6 December.

The Executive heard that Ofsted’s latest monitoring letter contained some very positive feedback regarding children looked after, adoption and fostering. Particular highlights included the views of foster carers themselves who reported that they are now included and involved in the service review. The fostering team was reorganised to improve the quality of work, while well-developed plans to amalgamate the fostering and adoption panels will speed up matching children with families. Adopters spoke very positively to inspectors about their experience with Bromley as an adoption agency.
