Ofsted assurance visit

We are delighted with feedback from the recent Ofsted assurance visit which consisted of two days virtual inspection and one day on site.  The inspectors said that “the children benefit from well-planned care provided by a staff team which shares a common drive to improve their outcomes and to keep them safe” and “warm, trusting relationships help the children to reflect on their histories, learn new strategies and to feel they have adults around them on whom they can rely” and  “It is clear that the young people’s views are valued and promoted”.  This positive feedback demonstrates that Atkinson consistently delivers good quality of care and strives to continually improve practice, enabling better outcomes for children and young people.
