A review’s found Children’s Services in Southend aren’t hitting the required standards.
The Ofsted inspection was carried out in April – with details released today.
Sections for children who need help and protection – achieving permanence – and leadership, management and governance – were all rated as needing improvement.
However – adoption performance and progress of care leavers were given a “good” rating.
It’s now recommending that the Borough Council works closely with educators to create a suitable strategy.
