    Ofsted needs. To ask the people who look after these vulnerable kids the foster carers and special guardians what they think and then there would be of a different opinion

    David Smith makes a very good point for Ofsted to consider (or to appoint an impartial “outsider”) to speak too carers and guardians and get their views first hand. I can only hope that the improvement continues.
