Children’s Services in Buckinghamshire are going places!
OFSTED recognise that Children’s Services across the County of Buckinghamshire are improving. They recognise and have confidence in the new, permanent, senior leadership team in the service. At the last monitoring visit OFSTED said: ‘”the local authority is beginning to demonstrate some early signs of improvement”; Inspectors further confirmed that “we have an accurate understanding of the extent of the challenge and a realistic improvement plan in place.”
We recognise the service we provide to vulnerable children is only as good as the staff within it, and that good social work practice depends on the right levels of support, encouragement and challenge. As the service is being re-built with strong foundations we require ambitious, dynamic and child centred professionals to add to our existing workforce.
