The latest Ofsted report into children’s services at Bromley Council singles out new leadership appointments as significant in seeing ratings rise from "inadequate" to "good".
A change of leadership is cited by inspectors as a key driver to improved support for vulnerable children at Bromley Council after it drafted in Ade Adetosoye to lead children's services as executive director for education, care and health and deputy chief executive.
The report comments
‘Since the last inspection in 2016, when children’s services were judged to be inadequate, there has been a new and highly experienced senior leadership team which has driven a rapid and sustained pace of improvement, supported by a whole-council investment in children’s services. This has led to vastly improved services for children and families. The executive director and his team, together with strong corporate support from members, have ensured an unwavering focus on continuous improvement. Staff at every level have high aspirations for the children who receive services in Bromley.’
