Dear Colleagues, 

Ofsted have published on 21st January 2016 revised policy and guidance for whistleblowers: ‘Whistleblowing to Ofsted about children's social care services’. You can access the policy here:

The new policy and guidance outlines what Ofsted will do when we receive certain concerns about children’s social care services from a whistleblower. Our previous whistleblowing policy referred only to safeguarding in local authority children’s services, whereas our new policy extends to all matters relating to the inspection and regulation of children’s social care establishments, agencies, services and providers (children’s social care services).
