Praise for county’s children’s services

Have your say

CHILDREN’S services in Lincolnshire have been rated “excellent” in the latest Ofsted assessment.

Lincolnshire County Council says the majority of services, settings and institutions were judged to be good or outstanding and almost all provision helps children and young people to learn while staying safe.

The performance rating follows the “outstanding” inspection into safeguarding arrangements earlier in the year.

Peter Duxbury, director of children’s services, said: “This is another vindication of the excellent work that is making a difference for young people in the county but we will continue to strive to improve still further.”
