To receive a presentation on the recent Ofsted inspection.


Kerry Birtles, Director of Children’s Social Care, delivered a presentation on the recent Ofsted inspection which took place in November 2021. This was noted to have been a positive experience for Cheshire East and progress was identified as well as recommendations for further improvement. The rating of requiring improvement to be good would remain until it could be assessed at the next full inspection. The committee thanked the team for their work.


A request was made for information to be brought to the committee on the impact of Covid-19 on the service area to put performance data into context.




That the update be noted.
