The impact of effective leadership in Children’s Services cannot be underestimated.  One of the common traits acknowledged by Ofsted within strong performing local authorities is the development of reflective supervision that provides challenge in a constructive and structured way.

This increased confidence among the workforce that good decisions were being made which were improving outcomes for children and families.
