Rotherham reviews residential children’s homes after two found inadequate in a month

St Edmund’s children’s home was judged inadequate after it was found that safeguarding issues were overlooked

A second Rotherham children’s home in a month has been judged inadequate, after it was found to leave young people vulnerable to “significant harm”.

An Ofsted inspection found that young people in St. Edmund’s children’s home “do not benefit from consistent support with their emotional health. Some individuals who have requested care coordinators have not been supported to access this service. As a result some young people continue to suffer poor mental health and remain anxious.”

Another children’s home run by Rotherham council, Woodview, was closed down last month after an Ofsted inspection found young people were “not kept safe” in the home. In both cases, risks around child sexual exploitation were identified.
