Derbyshire County Council’s services for children and young people have been rated as “good” in a new-style inspection carried out by government watchdogs.

The council is one of the first five local authorities inspected under a new combined Ofsted regime which looks at the way all services for vulnerable young people are run.

This includes children who need protection, children in care, those leaving care and children helped by the authority’s adoption and fostering teams.

And in a report released on Tuesday, inspectors rated all five areas inspected as “good” and praised the authority for effectively protecting and caring for young people.

Cabinet member for children and young people Cllr Kevin Gillott said: “This report reflects the hard work and commitment of our staff, alongside our partners in the private and voluntary sector, to ensure all Derbyshire’s youngsters get the chance to achieve their full potential.

“The positive good rating is even more significant given the new, tougher regime introduced by Ofsted which has raised the achievement bar even higher.”
