Ofsted publish ‘outstanding’ results for South East based fostering agency

We are pleased to see that Orange Grove Foster care have achieved ‘outstanding’ results for their South East office, following an official inspection from Ofsted, the independent watchdog.

Orange Grove provides fostering services in and around Kent, West Sussex, East Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire.

The fostering agency is responsible for respite, emergency and long and short-term fostering placements for over 65 children.

It was praised by inspectors for ‘providing highly effective services that consistently exceed the standards of good and contribute to significantly improved outcomes and positive experiences for children and young people’.

Ofsted commented: “Foster carers and staff have high aspirations for the children in their care. Attendance and engagement in education are actively promoted and all children are making progress. Children are also given opportunities to experience things that they may not have done before.”

Orange Grove Foster care was previously rated as ‘Good’ in February 2016, and since this time, managers have strived to excel and inspire a culture where all staff and carers aspire to be the best.
