Glowing Ofsted reports for all Tameside children’s homes

 

ALL of Tameside’s children’s homes are now rated good or outstanding following the publication of two new Ofsted reports.

 

Inspectors recently visited homes in Denton and Hyde, rating one as good and the other as outstanding and praising the work being carried out to support and care for some of the borough’s most vulnerable children and young people.

 

This follows Ofsted inspections at the borough’s three other homes earlier in the year, all of which were rated as outstanding.

 

Tameside Council Executive Member for Children & Families Councillor Oliver Ryan said: "These further fantastic results demonstrate our drive and commitment to achieve for our children.

 

“All of our homes are continuing to build on their strengths to ensure their exceptional work continues to support children to be happy and achieve their very best. Well done to all our excellent staff, who I know are totally committed to providing the outstanding care for our children. I’m pleased to see the inspectors recognised their dedication and experience.”

 

The home in Hyde, which was rated as outstanding, was praised for how young people formed an excellent relationship with staff.

 

The inspector observed a “genuine display of warmth, affection and care” between the staff and young people. A young person told them:  “The staff are great. They really do care, and this helps me because I know everything will be alright”.

 

The home in Denton, rated as good, was also recognised for the bond between young people and staff. Inspectors said young people build “positive and trusting relationships with staff”. One young person told them: “I get on really well with the staff here. They are funny and help me a lot.”
