Joint inspections focusing on children’s mental health

Ofsted has published guidance for inspectors for the new series of joint inspections to evaluate children and young people’s experiences living with mental ill health with a focus those aged 10 to 15 years old in England.


The series of six joint targeted area inspections (JTAI) involving Ofsted, Care Quality Commission (CQC), HMI Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services, and HMI Probation will begin in September 2019, and includes a deep dive investigation into how local services respond to children and their families when children are: living with mental ill health; subject to a child in need or child protection plan; a looked-after child.
