Children services improvement plan and Ofsted report

Details of our plan to improve Croydon's children services and our latest Ofsted report from February 2020.


In the latest round of inspections, Ofsted rated Croydon's children's social care services as 'good'. 

Inspectors found that our 'services for children in need of help and protection are good, and services for children in care and care leavers are improving well.'

Ofsted added that the council 'demonstrates a relentless determination to deliver high-quality services to all children in Croydon’ and our social workers ‘feel valued’ and 'enjoy working in the borough.'
