Feedback From Ofsted Inspection Reports

Monitoring by the independent visitor is of good quality and consistently tests the manager. This provides an independent oversight of the home and is useful in supporting the manager to critically analyse his own practice.

Ofsted Inspector, South East

The manager works closely with the independent visitor to the home and acts appropriately on any recommendations made or shortfalls identified. He utilises the reports presented positively, in order to make the necessary improvements.

Ofsted Inspector, Milton Keynes

Rezume’s revised Regulation 44 visit report format is specific, informative, detailed, insightful, thought provoking and progressive. It covers the salient specific points and is creatively outcome focused.

Ofsted Inspector, Kent

The Inspector said that your reports have a good balance of challenge and aspiration.

Ofsted Inspector, Hampshire

The manager scrutinises the service and ensures that it benefits from the input of the independent visitor. Monthly reports are shared in staff meetings and suggestions and actions identified within the report are acted upon.

Ofsted Inspector, South East

Ofsted Inspector, South

External monthly visits highlight shortfalls and act as a strong mechanism to identify actions to improve the services in the interests of the children.

Ofsted Inspector, Aylesbury

More recently, managers have responded to recommendations made by the independent visitor. Examples of this include challenging the local authority for not providing independent return interviews when the young people go missing.

Ofsted Inspector, Bedford

Effective internal and external monitoring systems ensure that the service continues to provide a good standard of care. The registered manager is totally committed to providing young people with happy experiences and fond memories of their time living in the home.

Ofsted Inspector, Milton Keynes

An independent visitor, who provides a report to the manager and regulator identifying areas of good practice as well as areas for further development, undertakes external monitoring of the home.

Ofsted Inspector, South West

We have visitors countrywide and work on a flat fee basis to ensure our clients know exactly what they are paying each month.

Rezume provides a monthly monitoring/inspection service as part of the Regulation 44 (or equivalent) requirement of children’s homes; schools, residential family centres and other OFSTED inspected facilities.

The emphasis of the inspection/monitoring visit provided is to focus on quality of care, safeguarding and well-being on a month by month basis.

We will look at how the service operates on a daily basis, highlight your progressive outcomes, compliance with regulations and make helpful suggestions if needed.

We will undertake the requirement to consult with those who use services and other connected persons as required, we quality check all reports and send them to the regulator on your behalf.

  • Visitors who are residential childcare, compliance and quality monitoring experienced.
  • Visits that are not compromised by staff sickness, holidays, poor attendance or over bookings.
  • Robust reports and recommendations based on the specific regulatory requirements of your service.
  • An allocated visitor enabling them to build a rapport with Children, Young People and Staff Teams.
  • Attention to detail – Inspectors find our reports to have a good balance of challenge, aspiration and support.
  • Visits within the first two weeks of each month unless otherwise agreed.

Our approach can help make a measurable difference to your Inspection outcomes!

Challenging behaviour was the accepted term for staff challenging young people in this organisation until Rezume were contracted to undertake Regulation 44 visits. Suddenly it was staff and managers being challenged – to accurately record, evaluate and evidence young people’s involvement in their care. And so the staff ‘kicked off’ as is traditional when challenged. Gradually this behaviour was modified and Ofsted judgements improved in tandem. Systems are now simplified and plans robustly assessed and reviewed due to independent QA at its best from Rezume.’
