Ofsted have continued to praise ‘progress’ being delivered in Doncaster to improve the quality of children’s services following their fourth monitoring visit.

In their report, published today (Thursday 31 August), they say that recommendations made from the single inspection in 2015 have been “thoroughly addressed”, with senior leaders having developed a culture across the workforce of “high support and high challenge” with clear expectations to improve outcomes for children.

“Doing the Think Forward course has changed my point of view of getting into trouble with the police and it’s not funny; it’s a bad move.”
