Notification of Serious Events This procedure, which sets out which agencies and individuals should be notified when a serious event occurs in relation to a child living in a Children’s Home has been updated to reflect revised guidance issued by Ofsted in August 2019. The revised guidance sought to clarify what is meant by a ‘serious event’ with the aim of reducing the overall number of notifications made to Ofsted, and in particular reducing the number of repeat notifications made as a result of submitting additional / updated information.
