Furthermore, we will develop an action plan with clear strategies for improvement prior to the anticipated inspection date.
We visit residential children’s homes and School’s on a daily basis, we are ideally placed to identify current trends and best practices nationwide; this knowledge is always used to advise and recommend improvements.
Feedback for our services by Ofsted has always been excellent, especially in relation to our Regulation 44 Inspections and Development Plans.
