To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what indicators his Department uses to measure the effectiveness of the children's care system.
The department uses a wide range of indicators to measure the effectiveness of the children’s care system. These are provided at local, regional and national level in the department’s statistical first releases and brought together in our local authority interactive tool. This can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/local-authority-interactive-tool-lait.
We also use Ofsted judgements to assess the effectiveness of children’s services. This enables the department to intervene where necessary, to follow up on any concerns in local authorities and to explore good practice.
