Good news from Merton

There are so many words and phrases which tick all the right boxes in Ofsted’s report on children’s services in the London Borough of Merton, that I had to pinch myself to make sure it was not a dream.

I particularly liked the following: “a ‘flatter’ management structure”, “a 33% increase in frontline social workers”, “an extra £1 million pounds per year for the past three years”, “manageable caseloads”, “frequent supervision”, “a challenging and rewarding environment”, "frequent supervision" and “a strong culture of learning”.

You can read more about the inspection in Community Care.

Or if you have the time read the whole report yourself.
