Symbol’s residential family assessment centre in Bristol had an unannounced Ofsted inspection on the 3rd and 4th December 2012. We are pleased to have been awarded an overall rating of “Good”. – Well done to all involved!
The following is a quote from the report:
“A strength of the service is the provision of individual placement plans and tailored assessment processes and support for each family which take account of their particular needs and abilities. Assessment reports contribute to effective decision-making and address the issues required by the courts and placing authorities. Parents and older children are fully involved in the assessment process and most families feel well supported by the staff team. Children’s safety is central to all aspects of the centre’s work. Managers and staff work in partnership with external agencies and services to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and parents.”
