A welcome report has been published by Ofsted after a recent inspection, noting that Children's services at Surrey County Council have improved since the last inspection in 2018. Inspectors mentioned that Surrey's leaders have achieved "significant change".

Tim Oliver, Leader of Surrey County Council said: "I'm glad that the immense amount of hard work to improve our Children's Services has been officially recognised by Ofsted. We have painstakingly undertaken a complete review of everything we do, and it is clear from Ofsted that they now have confidence in our leadership, our processes and our staff.

"After many years we are now out of intervention, we have trusted leaders and are well on the way to delivering outstanding care and support to our young people. We know there is more to do, and we will do it with renewed energy and added confidence from this report."
