New integrated inspection services announced for England

Monday 1st July saw the launch of a new integrated inspection system designed to ensure that all local authority children's services reflect their needs and contribute to their well-being.

Under the new arrangements, inspectorates and commissions involved in the inspection of children’s services will work together from September to inspect, review and assess education, social and healthcare provision for children and young people aged 0-19.

The framework for inspection of children’s services has been published today following consultation and the passing of the Children Bill. The 10 inspectorates and commissions involved in its development today welcomed the move to a more integrated approach to the inspection of children’s services.

Speaking on behalf of all the inspectorates and commissions, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Schools, David Bell, said: "The new arrangements published today represent the first ever integrated system for the inspection of children’s services and aim to ensure that all children and young people, no matter where they live and whatever their situation, are safe and happy and get the best from their local services."
