Croydon Council has been commended for its work protecting young people in its children’s services.
Ofsted inspectors declared the local authority adequate overall for its children’s services while declaring its capacity to improve as good.
Reduction in teenage pregnancy rates and providing early intervention services were praised while inspectors found that in all cases they examined children in the council’s care were being kept safe.
Councillor Tim Pollard, cabinet member for children, families and learning, said: “This report shows that we are moving in the right direction. It’s not a reason for complacency, but I am pleased that our looked after children have been found to be well cared for and that the safety of young people in general is managed well.”
