Successful Ofsted Inspection for Derby

Ofsted inspected Derby services for children in need of help and protection, looked after children and care leavers in March 2017 and reviewed the effectiveness of the Derby Safeguarding Children Board. The report was published in June.

Derby children's services were found to be "Good" and the Derby Safeguarding Children Board was judged "Outstanding".

Ofsted commented that the DSCB is a highly strategic partnership and are well led.

The findings from this inspection are a true testament to all the hard work of staff and partners involved in making sure children and young people in the city are safe and achieve the best outcomes.
