Cabinet considered a report of the Director of Children’s Services presenting the annual safeguarding report.
The key areas of the report, including the positive judgement by Ofsted were introduced. It was noted that growth in referrals had continued, but there were fewer children in care and that positive outcomes for Hampshire children had increased. Cabinet noted that work with other local authorities had been supported by Ofsted in their inspection and judgement.
The recommendations in the report were agreed. A decision record is attached to these minutes.
