Detail

The single inspection framework has the framework and evaluation schedule for:

  • inspecting services for children in need of help and protection, looked after children and care leavers
  • reviewing Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs)

The child level data document is additional guidance and the template for Annex A. It will help a local authority provide data lists for their inspection. Full details are in Annex A of the framework and the inspection handbook.
