肯特郡議會的兒童服務 "傑出"。

肯特郡議會(KCC)的兒童服務,不得不對 "無與倫比的 "兒童移民數量做出反應,被評為 "傑出"。

Ofsted檢查員報告說。"肯特郡的兒童服務機構不得不對抵達該郡的無人陪伴的尋求庇護兒童的數量作出反應。

"有時,當地和國家的需求一直是具有挑戰性的平衡。高級領導和一線工作人員對這些特殊的服務提供壓力做出了很好的回應。

"結果,肯特郡議會負責的孤身尋求庇護的兒童得到了很好的照顧,為肯特郡所有弱勢兒童提供的服務繼續得到改善。"

然而,檢查員注意到一些兒童由於社會工作者在上學期間進行訪問而錯過了課程,並說當局需要改善社會工作者的工作量。

KCC的兒童、青年和教育臨時公司主管Sarah Hammond說。"我們的兒童服務被評為優秀,我感到非常自豪。

"這反映了我們的工作人員每天對兒童、年輕人和他們的家庭生活所做的積極改變,以及他們對提供最佳服務標準的奉獻和承諾。

"她說:"這是一個了不起的結果,但我們的工作並沒有就此停止。

"我們將繼續進一步改進我們的服務和專業實踐,以便我們繼續為我們的兒童、年輕人和他們的家庭提供出色的服務"。


Kent County Council's (KCC) children's services, which have had to respond to "unparalleled" numbers of child migrants, have been rated "outstanding".

The Ofsted inspectors reported: "Kent children's services have had to respond to the unparalleled numbers of unaccompanied asylum-seeking children arriving in the county.

"At times, the local and national demands have been challenging to balance. Senior leaders and frontline staff have responded well to these exceptional pressures on service delivery.

"As a result, the unaccompanied asylum-seeking children Kent County Council takes responsibility for are well cared for and services for all vulnerable children in Kent have continued to improve."

However, inspectors noted some children were missing lessons due to social workers conducting visits during school hours, and said the authority needed to improve social workers' caseloads.

Sarah Hammond, KCC's Interim Corporate Director of Children, Young People and Education, said: "I am incredibly proud that our children's services have been rated as outstanding.

"It reflects the positive difference our staff make every day to the lives of children, young people and their families, as well as their dedication and commitment to providing the best possible standard of service.

"This is a fantastic result, but our work does not stop here", she said.

"We will continue to make further improvements to our services and professional practice so that we continue to deliver outstanding services for our children, young people and their families."
