Detail of outcome
Between 14 June and 12 July 2013, Ofsted consulted on its proposed arrangements for the inspection of services for children in need of help and protection, children looked after and care leavers (the ‘single inspection framework’). The consultation sought to gather responses from those with an interest in, or expertise relating to, child protection and provision for children looked after.
A total of 170 responses were received via our online consultation. An additional small number of responses were received in hard copy. We met with children and young people and listened carefully to their experiences. We also took into account the previous consultation responses and experiences from the pilot inspections of the proposed multi-agency inspection and the proposed separate inspection of services for children looked after and care leavers.

Ofsted seeks the widest possible range of views from those who have an interest in, or expertise relating to, child protection and provision for children looked after in order to ensure that the changes proposed take proper account of the needs and circumstances of all interested parties.
There is also a guide for children and young people: News for children and young people.
The closing date for the consultation is 12 July 2013.
