Inquiry Children's Homes
Minister for Children and Families at Department for Education
Director of Children’s Social Care at Department for Education

Educational outcomes for these children may also be raised in the meeting, with the Committee likely to examine why looked-after children are less likely to attend high performing schools, why over 10% of vulnerable children in care homes attend special schools rated below average by Ofsted, and why there is no firm record of the number of children in care homes who are out of education or receiving unregulated education.

The Minister may also face wider questions about young people’s mental health and wellbeing.
