Details

Joint targeted area inspections (JTAIs) include a ‘deep dive’ investigation - an evaluation of children and young people’s experiences. This changes periodically to investigate different themes in detail. The current theme is child sexual exploitation, children associated with gangs and children missing from home, care or education.

View the framework and guidance for the joint inspection of arrangements and services for children in need of help and protection.

Inspection reports and monitoring inspection letters are published on the Ofsted reports website.
