To ask the Secretary of State for Education what recent assessment he has made of the quality of reports provided by Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service to family courts.

The Department for Education does not assess the quality of individual reports provided by Cafcass to the family courts. However, the quality of the service which Cafcass provides is assessed by Ofsted.

Does this answer the above question?

How can OFSTED review the quality of reports when the answer in a previous question clearly states there is no review by Dept for Education or CAFCASS of outcomes from these reports?

Does this mean that OFSTED can actually get to review the outcomes of the Family Court? If this is so, then why can't other RELEVANT agencies review the Family Court outcomes .. like Justice Department or DWP ???

It seems you can get away in these family courts with fraud .
As for Ofsted they do not inspect private contact centres whether these are Cafcass run or Coram based CC's

The DFE is useless as a department and Ofsted are not going to over see the maladministration concerning anything to do with a system which is making money out of removing children and warehousing them into fostercare industry - or forced adoption.
In my humble opinion they are all equally corrupt and allowed to make far to much money in both the public and private sector .
I am waiting to hear from the courts , when is it never benefit fraud?
When it is a dad lying in the family courts and claiming to be working , but not eligible for CSA payments as he is on DLA .
So much for experts and professionals hey?
