    Birmingham children's services takeover warning

    Post by Admin on Sat Nov 16, 2013 4:45 am

    Thought I'd kick start the forum by posting the bellow article, about birmingham Childrens service. Subject which I'm concerned about.

    Children's services at Birmingham City Council could be taken over by the Department for Education before Christmas if standards do not improve.

    The takeover will happen if Ofsted inspectors do not see improvements when they return later this month.

    The department is the biggest of its kind in England and has been rated as "inadequate" for four years.

    Department head Peter Hay said the city council had to be involved in its running but there were no easy answers.

    Earlier this week, Michael Gove signalled a significant shift in direction in the way his government will deal with failing child protection services.

    I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing, "Children's services at Birmingham City Council" being taken over by the Department for Education.
