20 chil­dren’s homes not up to stan­dard

Birmingham Post - - NEWS -

A THIRD of all chil­dren’s homes in Birm­ing­ham were branded not good enough at their last in­spec­tion.

Data from Of­sted shows five out of 63 homes in the city had an over­all rat­ing of ‘in­ad­e­quate’ as of as of March 31. A fur­ther 15 were given an over­all rat­ing of ‘re­quires im­prove­ment’.

Only four were ‘out- stand­ing’ while 39 were rated ‘good’.

It means a to­tal of 32 per cent of chil­dren’s homes in Birm­ing­ham are cur­rently un­der­per­form­ing. The names of the in­di­vid­ual homes are not dis­closed.

It is pos­si­ble some of the homes may have been re-in­spected since March 31, and their over­all rat­ing has changed.
