20 children’s homes not up to standard
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.
