From 2018 Ofsted will use this framework and guidance for most inspections of local authority childrens services (ILACS).
This page includes:
- Ofsteds framework for the inspection of local authority childrens services
- guidance for local authorities on sharing information with us on an inspection
- guidance for local authorities on providing child level data for the inspection
- Talking to information for children and young people and their parents/carers that explains why inspectors want to speak with them and what we do with the things they tell us
For information about how Ofsted inspects the social care providers that we regulate see the Social care common inspection framework (SCCIF).
