In a letter published today, Ofsted inspectors have praised the way Rotherham Council has continued to provide exceptional support to children, young people and families during the Covid-19 pandemic.
In response, Councillor Gordon Watson, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Children and Young People’s Services at Rotherham Council said:
“People working in children’s services in Rotherham have been the unsung heroes of the pandemic, so I am delighted that this inspection helps to shine a light on their magnificent work, which can often go unnoticed by people that don’t come into direct contact with children’s services.
“I am extremely proud of how, in just a few years, our children’s services have been completely transformed for the better. Ofsted’s latest inspection findings show that we are continuing to improve across all areas of our service. We remain completely committed to providing every child in our borough with the best possible start in life – and that work continues.”
